Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
For shopping fun, head to Fifth Avenue or Shopping Girlfriend NYC. You'll explore and learn at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Museum of Modern Art. Venture out of the city with trips to Jones Beach State Park (in Wantagh), Gateway National Recreation (in Sandy Hook) and Bronx Zoo (in Bronx). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Times Square, learn more about the world around you at American Museum of Natural History, see the interesting displays at 9/11 Memorial, and enjoy breathtaking views from Top of the Rock Observation Deck.

In December, daily temperatures in New York City can reach 11°C, while at night they dip to 3°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
