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.
Do your shopping at Fifth Avenue and Astor Wines & Spirits. You'll explore and learn at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Frick Collection. There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to 9/11 Memorial, admire the striking features of Empire State Building, take in panoramic vistas at Top of the Rock Observation Deck, and see the interesting displays at Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.

For reviews, traveler tips, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read our New York City trip itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Canada, 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. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
