Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Visiting Bronx Zoo and Gateway National Recreation will get you outdoors. Do your shopping at Fifth Avenue and Chelsea Market. Venture out of the city with trips to Fire Island National Seashore (in Patchogue) and Jones Beach State Park (in Wantagh). There's lots more to do: don't miss a visit to Central Park, appreciate the history behind Statue of Liberty National Monument, examine the collection at 9/11 Memorial, and contemplate the long history of Hamilton Grange National Memorial.

If you are flying in from Sweden, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In December in New York City, expect temperatures between 11°C during the day and 3°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Wed) so you can travel back home.
