Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Attractions like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and New York Public Library make great kid-friendly stops. Get some cultural insight at Fifth Avenue and 9/11 Memorial. The adventure continues: make a trip to Central Park, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, get lost in a book at The Morgan Library & Museum, and wander the streets of Times Square.

To see photos, where to stay, traveler tips, and other tourist information, read our New York City itinerary maker.
