Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Change things up with a short trip to Bronx Zoo in Bronx (about 36 minutes away). The adventure continues: take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, browse the exhibits of 9/11 Memorial, stroll through The High Line, and don't miss a visit to Empire State Building.
