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.
Step out of the city life by going to Long Beach and Gateway National Recreation. Fifth Avenue and Times Square are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Next up on the itinerary: admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, learn more about the world around you at American Museum of Natural History, appreciate the history behind 9/11 Memorial, and contemplate the waterfront views at Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir.

To see ratings, photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the New York City travel 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. In September in New York City, expect temperatures between 30°C during the day and 22°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
