Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Museum-lovers will appreciate The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Get in touch with nature at Rockaway Beach and Gateway National Recreation. Take a break from New York City with a short trip to Coney Island in Brooklyn, about 30 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Ellis Island, see the interesting displays at Museum of Jewish Heritage, take in the exciting artwork at An American Craftsman, and get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History.

For where to stay, traveler tips, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the New York City vacation planner .
