Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Take a break from the city and head to Long Beach and Gateway National Recreation. Visit 9/11 Memorial and St. Paul's Chapel for their historical value. There's lots more to do: explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, don't miss a visit to Empire State Building, take a stroll through Times Square, and explore the activities along Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir.

For reviews, ratings, traveler tips, and tourist information, read our New York City vacation trip planner.

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 30°C in September, and nighttime lows around 22°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Mon) so you can travel back home.
