Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and 9/11 Memorial will appeal to museum buffs. Head to Fifth Avenue and SoHofor some retail therapy. The adventure continues: go for a charming ride with a horse-drawn carriage tour, get to know the fascinating history of Brooklyn Heights Promenade, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and hunt for treasures at Chelsea Market.
