Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Head to Fifth Avenue and Economy Candyfor some retail therapy. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and New York Public Library. And it doesn't end there: pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial, get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and take an in-depth tour of Ellis Island.
