Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at 9/11 Memorial and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Your inner history buff will appreciate The Met Cloisters and Brooklyn Heights Promenade. Take a break from New York City with a short trip to Woodbury Common Premium Outlets in Central Valley, about 1h 10 min away. There's much more to do: wander the streets of Washington Square Park, get a taste of the local shopping with Fifth Avenue, see the interesting displays at New York Public Library, and take in the pleasant sights at Times Square.

For other places to visit, reviews, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the New York City online holiday planner .
