Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
New York City is known for museums, nightlife, shopping, historic sites, and parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: make a trip to Central Park, get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History, take some stellar pictures from Top of the Rock Observation Deck, and appreciate the history behind Statue of Liberty National Monument.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. December in New York City sees daily highs of 11°C and lows of 3°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 28th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
