Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Fifth Avenue and The Metropolitan Museum of Art are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Escape the urban bustle at East River Waterfront Esplanade and Horse-Drawn Carriage Tours. There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at 9/11 Memorial, wander the streets of Times Square, admire all the interesting features of Hamilton Grange National Memorial, and learn more about the world around you at American Museum of Natural History.
