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.
Explore hidden gems such as St. Patrick's Cathedral and Frick Collection. 9/11 Memorial and Ellis Island will appeal to history buffs. Venture out of the city with trips to Woodbury Common Premium Outlets (in Central Valley), Kadampa Meditation Center New York and World Peace Temple (in Glen Spey) and St. Catharine Catholic Church (in Spring Lake). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, pause for some photo ops at Statue of Liberty National Monument, get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History, and enjoy breathtaking views from Empire State Building.

If you are flying in from Sweden, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In December in New York City, expect temperatures between 11°C during the day and 3°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
