New York City
Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Your inner history buff will appreciate William Floyd Estate and Grey Towers National Historic Site. Do some cultural sightseeing at Frick Collection and St. Catharine Catholic Church. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New York City: Zane Grey Museum (in Lackawaxen), Gateway National Recreation (in Sandy Hook) and Shore Line Trolley Museum (in East Haven). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at New York Public Library, get a taste of the local shopping with Fifth Avenue, explore the galleries of Boscobel House and Gardens, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral.

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 in New York City, expect temperatures between 11°C during the day and 3°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
