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 Chelsea Market. Times Square and The Metropolitan Museum of Art are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Central Park, learn more about the world around you at American Museum of Natural History, enjoy breathtaking views from Empire State Building, and go for a walk through The High Line.

If you are flying in from France, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. October in New York City sees daily highs of 23°C and lows of 15°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
