Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Museum-lovers will get to explore The Metropolitan Museum of Art and 9/11 Memorial. Get some historical perspective at Gateway National Recreation and St. Paul's Chapel. Change things up with a short trip to Bronx Zoo in Bronx (about 42 minutes away). There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Times Square, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, steep yourself in history at Hamilton Grange National Memorial, and explore the activities along Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir.

If you are flying in from Afghanistan, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In January, plan for daily highs up to 5°C, and evening lows to -5°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
