Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
You've added Fifth Avenue, Radio City Music Hall, Drunk Shakespeare, and other attractions to your itinerary. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Central Park, admire the striking features of Rockefeller Center, enjoy breathtaking views from Top of the Rock, and go for a walk through The High Line.
