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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Frick Collection and Gateway National Recreation. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Bayard Cutting Arboretum and Fire Island National Seashore. Next up on the itinerary: pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, examine the collection at Tenement Museum, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Brooklyn Heights Promenade.

To see more things to do, traveler tips, ratings, and tourist information, go to the New York City sightseeing planner.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In November, daily temperatures in New York City can reach 16°C, while at night they dip to 7°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
