Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Visit Gateway National Recreation and St. Patrick's Cathedral for their historical value. You'll explore and learn at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and American Museum of Natural History. Venture out of the city with trips to Ponquogue Beach (in Hampton Bays), Bronx Zoo (in Bronx) and Bayard Cutting Arboretum (in Great River). Next up on the itinerary: wander the streets of Times Square, go for a walk through Central Park, pause for some photo ops at Statue of Liberty National Monument, and get a taste of the local shopping with Fifth Avenue.

For reviews, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the New York City online holiday planner .

In September in New York City, expect temperatures between 80°F during the day and 66°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
