Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Escape the urban bustle at Gateway National Recreation and Central Park Zoo. Attractions like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and American Museum of Natural History make great kid-friendly stops. Step out of New York City with an excursion to Bronx Zoo in Bronx--about 42 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Central Park, appreciate the history behind Statue of Liberty National Monument, don't miss a visit to Empire State Building, and admire the masterpieces at The Museum of Modern Art.
