Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Shop till you drop at Fifth Avenue and Alex Ferrone Gallery. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Quogue Wildlife Refuge and Gateway National Recreation. Explore New York City's surroundings by going to House Of Candles (in Henryville), Lakota Wolf Preserve (in Columbia) and Cattus Island County Park (in Toms River). There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at Bayard Cutting Arboretum, pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and stop by Callie's Candy Kitchen.

To see photos, reviews, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the New York City vacation planner .

If you are flying in from Argentina, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. December in New York City sees daily highs of 10°C and lows of 2°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Thu) so you can travel back home.
