Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Bargemusic, The Phantom of the Opera, The Lion King, and other attractions. Get in touch with nature at Long Beach and Hamilton Grange National Memorial. Fifth Avenue and American Museum of Natural History are good opportunities to explore the local culture. There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, explore the world behind art at The Museum of Modern Art, make a trip to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and examine the collection at 9/11 Memorial.
