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.
Let the collections at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Ellis Island capture your imagination. For shopping fun, head to Fifth Avenue or Strand Bookstore. Venture out of the city with trips to Fire Island National Seashore (in Patchogue), Teatown Lake Reservation (in Ossining) and Bronx Zoo (in Bronx). Next up on the itinerary: pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial, get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History, admire the masterpieces at The Museum of Modern Art, and pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral.

If you are flying in from Latvia, 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. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
