Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at SoHo and Seaport District NYC. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like 9/11 Memorial and Ground Zero Museum Workshop. Venture out of the city with trips to Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park (in Poughkeepsie), Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum (in Hyde Park) and DM Weil Gallery (in New Paltz). And it doesn't end there: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at The Met Cloisters, don't miss a visit to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, browse the eclectic array of goods at Chelsea Market, and examine the collection at New York Public Library.
