Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
You'll explore and learn at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and 9/11 Memorial. Escape the urban bustle at East River Waterfront Esplanade and Bronx Zoo. There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Times Square, get outside with West Side Community Garden, race across the water with a speed boat tour, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral.

For other places to visit, ratings, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the New York City online journey maker .
