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.
New York City is known for sightseeing, museums, nightlife, shopping, and historic sites. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial, take in panoramic vistas at Top of the Rock Observation Deck, and admire the striking features of Rockefeller Center.

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 34°C in August, and nighttime lows around 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
