Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Museum of Modern Art will appeal to museum buffs. Head to Fifth Avenue and Kalustyan'sfor plenty of shopping. Change things up with a short trip to Gateway National Recreation in Sandy Hook (about 40 minutes away). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at 9/11 Memorial, enjoy breathtaking views from Empire State Building, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History.

To see photos, more things to do, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our New York City trip itinerary builder.

If you are flying in from Ireland, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. November in New York City sees daily highs of 16°C and lows of 7°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 30th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
