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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to William Floyd Estate and Ponquogue Beach. Grey Towers National Historic Site and Kadampa Meditation Center New York and World Peace Temple will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: House of Candles (in Henryville), Boscobel House and Gardens (in Garrison) and Gateway National Recreation (in Sandy Hook). Next up on the itinerary: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, contemplate the long history of United States Military Academy, admire the sheer force of Bushkill Falls, and explore the world behind art at Frick Collection.

If you are flying in from Japan, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 31st (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
