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.
Escape the urban bustle at Bronx Zoo and Fire Island National Seashore. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Gateway National Recreation (in Sandy Hook) and Jones Beach State Park (in Wantagh). There's still lots to do: stroll through Central Park, explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, appreciate the history behind Statue of Liberty National Monument, and go for a walk through The High Line.

To find maps, ratings, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the New York City vacation trip planner.

If you are flying in from India, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In October, daily temperatures in New York City can reach 23°C, while at night they dip to 15°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
