Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Step off the beaten path and head to The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and St. Patrick's Cathedral. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at 9/11 Memorial and Ellis Island. And it doesn't end there: make a trip to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History, and take in the pleasant sights at Central Park.
