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.
Head to Fifth Avenue and Strand Bookstorefor some retail therapy. Get some cultural insight at Times Square and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Change things up with a short trip to Gateway National Recreation in Sandy Hook (about 38 minutes away). There's much more to do: take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, enjoy breathtaking views from Empire State Building, look for gifts at Tiffany & Co., and pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral.

For photos, more things to do, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our New York City itinerary planner.

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 August, daytime highs in New York City are 34°C, while nighttime lows are 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
