Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Speed Boats Tours and Brooklyn Bridge Park. Explore New York City's surroundings by going to Hyde Park (Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site & Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum) and Philadelphia (Philadelphia Museum of Art, Eastern State Penitentiary, &more). And it doesn't end there: make a trip to Central Park, wander the streets of Dumbo, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at The Met Cloisters, and walk around World Trade Center's Liberty Park.
