Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Step out of the city life by going to Teatown Lake Reservation and Central Park Zoo. The Metropolitan Museum of Art and American Museum of Natural History will appeal to museum buffs. Go for a jaunt from New York City to Sandy Hook to see Gateway National Recreation about 38 minutes away. There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Fifth Avenue, don't miss a visit to Times Square, and contemplate the waterfront views at Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir.

If you are flying in from India, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In April in New York City, expect temperatures between 19°C during the day and 9°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 28th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
