Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
For shopping fun, head to Fifth Avenue or Chelsea Market. Visiting Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge and Hamilton Grange National Memorial will get you outdoors. There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, see the interesting displays at 9/11 Memorial, learn more about the world around you at American Museum of Natural History, and steep yourself in history at Ellis Island.

For maps, ratings, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the New York City vacation builder website.
