Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
New York City is known for museums, nightlife, shopping, historic sites, and parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: go for a walk through Central Park, admire the landmark architecture of Rockefeller Center, take some stellar pictures from Top of the Rock Observation Deck, and explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

To see photos, reviews, ratings, and other tourist information, you can read our New York City trip planning site .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In February, daytime highs in New York City are 8°C, while nighttime lows are -1°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
