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: make a trip to Central Park, admire the striking features of Rockefeller Center, appreciate the history behind 9/11 Memorial, and snap pictures at Brooklyn Bridge.

For reviews, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the New York City vacation planning website

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. Expect a daytime high around 5°C in January, and nighttime lows around -5°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
