Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
You'll explore and learn at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Frick Collection. American Museum of Natural History and Statue of Liberty National Monument are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with a short trip to Bronx Zoo in Bronx (about 42 minutes away). There's much more to do: appreciate the history behind 9/11 Memorial, enjoy breathtaking views from Empire State Building, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and don't miss a visit to Times Square.

For more things to do, reviews, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the New York City holiday planner.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. December in New York City sees daily highs of 11°C and lows of 3°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
