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 the less-touristy side of things at Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site and Washington Square Park. Visit Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt and Brooklyn Heights Promenade for their historical value. There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, contemplate the long history of Ellis Island, shop like a local with SoHo, and appreciate the history behind Statue of Liberty National Monument.
