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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Woodbury Common Premium Outlets and Fifth Avenue. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at William Floyd Estate and New York Public Library. Explore New York City's surroundings by going to Fire Island National Seashore (in Patchogue), Quogue Wildlife Refuge (in Quogue) and Bayard Cutting Arboretum (in Great River). There's lots more to do: explore the world behind art at Frick Collection, visit a coastal fixture at Gateway National Recreation, hunt for treasures at Chelsea Market, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral.

To see ratings, maps, photos, and tourist information, go to the New York City vacation builder.

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. January in New York City sees daily highs of 5°C and lows of -5°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 25th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
