Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Do some cultural sightseeing at 9/11 Memorial and American Museum of Natural History. Get in touch with nature at Speed Boats Tours and Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge. Explore New York City's surroundings by going to Great Neck Steppingstone Park (in Great Neck), Point Lookout Beach (in Point Lookout) and Joel L. Lefkowitz Park at West Meadow Beach (in Stony Brook). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Times Square, pause for some photo ops at Statue of Liberty National Monument, take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, and examine the collection at New York Public Library.

To see where to stay, photos, ratings, and more tourist information, read our New York City route planner.

If you are flying in from Belgium, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In July in New York City, expect temperatures between 35°C during the day and 26°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 11th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
