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 Grey Towers National Historic Site and 9/11 Memorial for their historical value. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Bushkill Falls and Chelsea Market. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Swartswood State Park (in Swartswood), Fire Island National Seashore (in Patchogue) and Ort Farms (in Long Valley). The adventure continues: take a stroll through Fifth Avenue, don't miss a visit to Times Square, let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, and pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral.

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. In October in New York City, expect temperatures between 23°C during the day and 15°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
