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, contemplate the long history of 9/11 Memorial, appreciate the history behind Statue of Liberty National Monument, and get great views at Top of the Rock Observation Deck.

For traveler tips, reviews, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the New York City holiday planner.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 30°C in September, and nighttime lows around 22°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 11th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
