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.
Relax by the water at Long Beach and Gateway National Recreation. Get some historical perspective at 9/11 Memorial and St. Paul's Chapel. There's lots more to do: explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, stop by Kalustyan's, pause for some photo ops at Statue of Liberty National Monument, and take in panoramic vistas at Empire State Building.

To see maps, where to stay, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the New York City trip builder.

If you are flying in from Israel, 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 7th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
