days
New York City

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Fifth Avenue and 9/11 Memorial. Shop till you drop at Shopping Girlfriend NYC and Strand Bookstore. Next up on the itinerary: explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, don't miss a visit to Central Park, wander the streets of Times Square, and pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral.

To find ratings, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our New York City vacation trip planner.

If you are flying in from Netherlands, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 11°C in December, and nighttime lows around 3°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
