Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Visiting Gateway National Recreation and Central Park Zoo will get you outdoors. For shopping fun, head to Fifth Avenue or Chelsea Market. Explore New York City's surroundings by going to Fire Island National Seashore (in Patchogue) and Bronx Zoo (in Bronx). And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Times Square, explore the activities along Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir, admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and enjoy breathtaking views from Empire State Building.

For reviews, maps, traveler tips, and more tourist information, go to the New York City trip itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from India, 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. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 12th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
