Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Get a sense of the local culture at Fifth Avenue and St. Patrick's Cathedral. Head to Chelsea Market and Amazing Olivefor plenty of shopping. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Quogue Wildlife Refuge (in Quogue), Fire Island National Seashore (in Patchogue) and Bushkill Falls (in Bushkill). There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Bayard Cutting Arboretum, don't miss a visit to Times Square, contemplate the long history of 9/11 Memorial, and pause for some serene contemplation at St. Catharine Catholic Church.

Make your New York City itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

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 December, plan for daily highs up to 11°C, and evening lows to 3°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 3rd (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
