Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Visit Gateway National Recreation and Ponquogue Beach for some beach relaxation. 9/11 Memorial and St. Patrick's Cathedral will appeal to history buffs. Step out of New York City to go to Bronx and see Bronx Zoo, which is approximately 42 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Fifth Avenue, explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, make a trip to Times Square, and learn more about the world around you at American Museum of Natural History.

For where to stay, ratings, photos, and more tourist information, you can read our New York City road trip planner .

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 September, daytime highs in New York City are 30°C, while nighttime lows are 22°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
