Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Escape the urban bustle at Bronx Zoo and Central Park Zoo. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Fifth Avenue and Times Square. Step out of New York City to go to Sandy Hook and see Gateway National Recreation, which is approximately 40 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at 9/11 Memorial, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Paul's Chapel, and get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History.

To find other places to visit, where to stay, ratings, and more tourist information, read our New York City trip itinerary website .

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 December, daily temperatures in New York City can reach 11°C, while at night they dip to 3°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
