Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Here are some ideas for day two: don't miss a visit to Times Square, then get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History, then admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and finally pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial.
