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 Ellis Island are in your itinerary. Museum-lovers will appreciate The Metropolitan Museum of Art and American Museum of Natural History. Step out of New York City with an excursion to Gateway National Recreation in Sandy Hook--about 1h 10 min away. There's much more to do: take a stroll through Times Square, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Paul's Chapel, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and stop by Kalustyan's.
