Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Museum-lovers will get to explore The Metropolitan Museum of Art and American Museum of Natural History. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Fifth Avenue and Kalustyan's. There's still lots to do: browse the exhibits of 9/11 Memorial, don't miss a visit to Empire State Building, look for gifts at Tiffany & Co., and go for a walk through Central Park.

For other places to visit, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the New York City day trip site .
