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 Narwhal Yacht Charters, Statue of Liberty National Monument and Sailaway NY. Visit Gateway National Recreation and 9/11 Memorial for their historical value. Escape the urban bustle at Bronx Zoo and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir. There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Times Square, take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Paul's Chapel, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
