9/11 Memorial and St. Paul's Chapel will appeal to history buffs. You'll explore and learn at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Ellis Island. Explore New York City's surroundings by going to Gateway National Recreation (in Sandy Hook) and Bronx Zoo (in Bronx). Next up on the itinerary: shop like a local with Fifth Avenue, learn more about the world around you at American Museum of Natural History, see the interesting displays at New York Public Library, and make a trip to Central Park.
