Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
9/11 Memorial and Independence Hall will appeal to history buffs. Let the collections at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) capture your imagination. Venture out of the city with trips to The Den of Marbletown (in Kingston), Great Neck Steppingstone Park (in Great Neck) and New Paltz (DM Weil Gallery & Nyquist-Harcourt Wildlife Sanctuary). There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to Fifth Avenue, enjoy breathtaking views from Empire State Building, see the interesting displays at New York Public Library, and take in the pleasant sights at Central Park.
