Today, New York City might be best known for its bright lights and "City That Never Sleeps" mentality, but this modern wonder is also one of the oldest cities in North America. Featuring spectacular historical buildings and landmarks like the Plaza Hotel, the New York Stock Exchange, the Brooklyn Bridge, The Cloisters, the Flatiron Building, and much more, the depth of culture and history within the city is immense.
For those particularly interested in the back story of the Big Apple, a visit to the famous Green-Wood Cemetery is a must. Founded in 1838 and located on the site of the Battle of Brooklyn, this cemetery features Victorian mausoleums, cherubs and gargoyles, as well as an astounding Gothic arch.
