Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Your inner history buff will appreciate 9/11 Memorial and St. Paul's Chapel. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Fifth Avenue and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Gateway National Recreation (in Sandy Hook) and Bronx Zoo (in Bronx). There's still lots to do: go for a walk through Central Park, tour the pleasant surroundings at Long Beach, browse the eclectic array of goods at Chelsea Market, and look for gifts at Tiffany & Co..

September in New York City sees daily highs of 30°C and lows of 22°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
