Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Get some historical perspective at Gateway National Recreation and Ellis Island. Do some cultural sightseeing at Fifth Avenue and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. There's still lots to do: pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and don't miss a visit to Empire State Building.

To find more things to do, maps, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the New York City day trip planning site .

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 March, daytime highs in New York City are 11°C, while nighttime lows are 1°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 25th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
