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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Fifth Avenue and Tiffany & Co.. Your inner history buff will appreciate Gateway National Recreation and Hamilton Grange National Memorial. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Bronx Zoo (in Bronx), Bayard Cutting Arboretum (in Great River) and Jones Beach State Park (in Wantagh). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Times Square, browse the exhibits of Ellis Island, go for a walk through Central Park, and explore the landscape on two wheels at Hudson River Greenway.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, maps, and other tourist information, use the New York City trip 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. Expect a daytime high around 16°C in November, and nighttime lows around 7°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
