Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Museum-lovers will get to explore The Metropolitan Museum of Art and American Museum of Natural History. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Fifth Avenue and Chelsea Market. Explore New York City's surroundings by going to Bronx Zoo (in Bronx), Fire Island National Seashore (in Patchogue) and Gateway National Recreation (in Sandy Hook). And it doesn't end there: appreciate the history behind 9/11 Memorial, don't miss a visit to Statue of Liberty National Monument, admire the striking features of Empire State Building, and enjoy the sand and surf at Long Beach.

To find maps, photos, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the New York City custom trip planner.

If you are flying in from Portugal, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. October in New York City sees daily highs of 23°C and lows of 15°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 18th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
