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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like 9/11 Memorial and Ellis Island. Let the collections at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and American Museum of Natural History capture your imagination. There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Fifth Avenue, stroll through Central Park, hunt for treasures at Chelsea Market, and shop like a local with Shopping Girlfriend NYC.

To find ratings, reviews, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our New York City travel itinerary planner.

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, daytime highs in New York City are 23°C, while nighttime lows are 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
