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, historic sites, parks, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: go for a walk through Central Park, take in panoramic vistas at Empire State Building, get great views at Top of the Rock Observation Deck, and explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

To see maps, photos, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our New York City tour itinerary planning website .

If you are flying in from Hong Kong, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In March in New York City, expect temperatures between 11°C during the day and 1°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 15th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
