Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Escape the urban bustle at Bronx Zoo and Central Park Zoo. Get a sense of the local culture at Fifth Avenue and American Museum of Natural History. Venture out of the city with trips to Jones Beach State Park (in Wantagh) and Gateway National Recreation (in Sandy Hook). Next up on the itinerary: explore the galleries of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, examine the collection at New York Public Library, take in panoramic vistas at Empire State Building, and admire the masterpieces at Frick Collection.

To see where to stay, other places to visit, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the New York City trip planner .

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 5°C in January, and nighttime lows around -5°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
