New York City

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Get a sense of the local culture at Times Square and 9/11 Memorial. Get outdoors at Bronx Zoo and Jones Beach State Park. Step out of New York City with an excursion to Gateway National Recreation in Sandy Hook--about 40 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: explore the galleries of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, steep yourself in history at Hamilton Grange National Memorial, enjoy the sand and surf at Long Beach, and pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral.

For reviews and more tourist information, refer to the New York City sightseeing planner.

In October, daily temperatures in New York City can reach 23°C, while at night they dip to 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
