Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
New York City is known for museums, nightlife, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, admire the striking features of Grand Central Terminal, take in panoramic vistas at Empire State Building, and make a trip to Rockefeller Center.
