Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Fifth Avenue and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Step out of the city life by going to Bronx Zoo and Central Park Zoo. Step out of New York City to go to Sandy Hook and see Gateway National Recreation, which is approximately 40 minutes away. The adventure continues: appreciate the history behind 9/11 Memorial, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, make a trip to Statue of Liberty National Monument, and learn more about the world around you at American Museum of Natural History.

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, plan for daily highs up to 11°C, and evening lows to 3°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
