Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Change things up with a short trip to Bronx Zoo in Bronx (about 36 minutes away). There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to Central Park, enjoy breathtaking views from Top of the Rock Observation Deck, pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial, and admire the striking features of Empire State Building.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 24°C, and evening lows to 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Tue) so you can travel back home.
