Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
For shopping fun, head to Fifth Avenue or MoMA Design Store. You'll explore and learn at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and 9/11 Memorial. Explore New York City's surroundings by going to Bronx Zoo (in Bronx) and Gateway National Recreation (in Sandy Hook). The adventure continues: explore the wealth of natural beauty at Hamilton Grange National Memorial, take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History.

To see photos, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the New York City itinerary maker.

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. In October, daily temperatures in New York City can reach 23°C, while at night they dip to 15°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 7th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
