Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Fifth Avenue and St. Patrick's Cathedral. Your inner history buff will appreciate 9/11 Memorial and Ellis Island. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Amazing Olive (in Port Jefferson), Cutchogue (McCall Wines, Alex Ferrone Gallery, & more) and Paumanok Vineyards (in Aquebogue). The adventure continues: revel in the low prices at Woodbury Common Premium Outlets, take a stroll through Times Square, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Fire Island National Seashore, and make a trip to The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

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. In December in New York City, expect temperatures between 11°C during the day and 3°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 26th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
