Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Gateway National Recreation and 9/11 Memorial. Get outdoors at Bronx Zoo and Hamilton Grange National Memorial. Step out of New York City with an excursion to Fire Island National Seashore in Patchogue--about 1h 25 min away. There's lots more to do: admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History.

December in New York City sees daily highs of 11°C and lows of 3°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
