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 9/11 Memorial and New York Public Library. Step out of the city life by going to East River Waterfront Esplanade and Horse-Drawn Carriage Tours. And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Fifth Avenue, pause for some photo ops at Statue of Liberty National Monument, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and learn more about the world around you at American Museum of Natural History.
