Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Popular historic sites such as 9/11 Memorial and St. Patrick's Cathedral are in your itinerary. Museum-lovers will appreciate The Metropolitan Museum of Art and New York Public Library. Step out of New York City with an excursion to Gateway National Recreation in Sandy Hook--about 1h 10 min away. The adventure continues: wander the streets of Times Square, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Paul's Chapel, contemplate the long history of Ellis Island, and make a trip to Fifth Avenue.
