New York City

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Step out of the city life by going to Upper Delaware River and Baiting Hollow Hummingbird Sanctuary. Popular historic sites such as Stone Church and Argyle Park are in your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Quogue Wildlife Refuge (in Quogue), Cutchogue (The East End Mushroom Company & Alex Ferrone Gallery) and Cornelia & Florence Bridge Nature Preserve (in Milford). There's still lots to do: take a peaceful walk through Wertheim National Wildlife Refuge, trek along Columbia Trail, look for all kinds of wild species at Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge, and relax in the rural setting at Peconic River Herb Farm.

For maps, photos, reviews, and more tourist information, read our New York City trip planning website .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In April, daily temperatures in New York City can reach 19°C, while at night they dip to 8°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
