Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Rockefeller Center as well as Fifth Avenue. You'll discover tucked-away gems like The Met Cloisters and Frick Collection. You'll explore and learn at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and American Museum of Natural History. There's much more to do: explore the galleries of 9/11 Memorial, hunt for treasures at Chelsea Market, go for a walk through Central Park, and pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral.
