Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Visit Gateway National Recreation and St. Patrick's Cathedral for their historical value. Visiting Bronx Zoo and Hamilton Grange National Memorial will get you outdoors. Get out of town with these interesting New York City side-trips: Bayard Cutting Arboretum (in Great River), Sands Point Preserve (in Port Washington) and Jones Beach State Park (in Wantagh). The adventure continues: pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial, step off the mainland to explore Fire Island National Seashore, go for a walk through Central Park, and admire the landmark architecture of Empire State Building.

For more things to do, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the New York City travel itinerary creator.

If you are flying in from Switzerland, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. October in New York City sees daily highs of 23°C and lows of 15°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
