Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Step out of the city life by going to Gateway National Recreation and Long Beach. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like 9/11 Memorial and Hamilton Grange National Memorial. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New York City: Ponquogue Beach (in Hampton Bays), Belmar Beach (in Belmar) and Fire Island National Seashore (in Patchogue). There's lots more to do: explore the galleries of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, enjoy the sand and surf at Jenkinson's Boardwalk, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and take in panoramic vistas at Empire State Building.

If you are flying in from Brazil, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 34°C in August, and nighttime lows around 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
