Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.

And it doesn't end there: stroll through Central Park, pause for some photo ops at Statue of Liberty National Monument, enjoy breathtaking views from Empire State Building, and pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral.
