days
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.
Take a break from the city and head to Bronx Zoo and Gateway National Recreation. The Metropolitan Museum of Art and St. Patrick's Cathedral are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with a short trip to Fire Island National Seashore in Patchogue (about 1h 25 min away). There's still lots to do: appreciate the history behind 9/11 Memorial, meet the residents at Central Park Zoo, explore the activities along Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir, and don't miss a visit to Empire State Building.

For reviews, more things to do, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the New York City vacation trip planner.

If you are flying in from Denmark, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In November, plan for daily highs up to 16°C, and evening lows to 7°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
