Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Ponquogue Beach and Gateway National Recreation. Fifth Avenue and American Museum of Natural History are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Cupsogue Beach County Park (in Westhampton Beach), Jenkinson's Boardwalk (in Point Pleasant Beach) and Belmar Beach (in Belmar). There's much more to do: take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, get a taste of the local shopping with Shopping Girlfriend NYC, explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and don't miss a visit to Statue of Liberty National Monument.

To see maps, ratings, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the New York City day trip planning app .

If you are flying in from Belgium, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
