Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Get some cultural insight at 9/11 Memorial and The Museum of Modern Art. Get some historical perspective at St. Patrick's Cathedral and St. Paul's Chapel. And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, don't miss a visit to Statue of Liberty National Monument, see the interesting displays at New York Public Library, and take in the pleasant sights at Central Park.
