Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like 9/11 Memorial and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Museum-lovers will get to explore The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and New York Public Library. There's much more to do: take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, take a stroll through Times Square, admire the landmark architecture of Rockefeller Center, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Trinity Church.
