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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Fifth Avenue and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Get some historical perspective at 9/11 Memorial and Gateway National Recreation. Venture out of the city with trips to Bronx Zoo (in Bronx), Fire Island National Seashore (in Patchogue) and Ponquogue Beach (in Hampton Bays). On the 27th (Wed), spend an adventurous day with a kayaking and canoeing tour. Next up on the itinerary: wander the streets of Times Square, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Hamilton Grange National Memorial, explore the world behind art at Frick Collection, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Long Beach.

If you are flying in from Norway, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In September, plan for daily highs up to 30°C, and evening lows to 22°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
