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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Ellis Island. Visiting Bronx Zoo and Long Beach will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to Gateway National Recreation (in Sandy Hook) and Fire Island National Seashore (in Patchogue). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at 9/11 Memorial, stop by Strand Bookstore, get a taste of the local shopping with Fifth Avenue, and learn more about the world around you at American Museum of Natural History.

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. Expect a daytime high around 23°C in October, and nighttime lows around 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
