Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Fifth Avenue and St. Patrick's Cathedral. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Tiffany & Co. and Strand Bookstore. Next up on the itinerary: admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, enjoy breathtaking views from Empire State Building, appreciate the history behind Statue of Liberty National Monument, and take a stroll through Times Square.

Expect a daytime high around 11°C in December, and nighttime lows around 3°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
