Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Attractions like Central Park and Statue of Liberty National Monument make great kid-friendly stops. Escape the urban bustle at Long Beach and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir. And it doesn't end there: don't miss a visit to Times Square, admire the striking features of Rockefeller Center, take a stroll through Fifth Avenue, and see the interesting displays at 9/11 Memorial.
