Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum as well as Tenement Museum. Kids will enjoy Central Park and American Museum of Natural History. There's lots more to do: explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, go for a walk through Times Square, admire the striking features of Rockefeller Center, and steep yourself in history at Ellis Island.
