Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Gateway National Recreation and The Metropolitan Museum of Art are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like 9/11 Memorial and St. Patrick's Cathedral. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Sands Point Preserve (in Port Washington) and Bayard Cutting Arboretum (in Great River). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Times Square, take in panoramic vistas at Top of the Rock Observation Deck, explore the world behind art at The Museum of Modern Art, and get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History.

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. In December, daytime highs in New York City are 11°C, while nighttime lows are 3°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 2nd (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
