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.
Visit William Floyd Estate and St. Patrick's Cathedral for their historical value. Get in touch with nature at Fire Island National Seashore and Ponquogue Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Woodbury Common Premium Outlets (in Central Valley), Storm King Art Center (in New Windsor) and Laurel Lake Vineyards (in Laurel). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at Frick Collection, examine the collection at Tenement Museum, hunt for treasures at Chelsea Market, and wander the streets of Fifth Avenue.

If you are flying in from Ireland, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In December, daily temperatures in New York City can reach 11°C, while at night they dip to 3°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
