Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
You've added Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, The High Line, Grand Central Terminal, and other attractions to your itinerary. You'll explore and learn at 9/11 Memorial and New York Public Library. Step out of the city life by going to East River Waterfront Esplanade and Hudson River Greenway. Venture out of the city with trips to Rockland Lake State Park (in Valley Cottage), Quogue Wildlife Refuge (in Quogue) and The Raptor Trust Center (in Millington). There's lots more to do: wander the streets of Times Square, take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, admire the natural beauty at Hallett Nature Sanctuary, and admire the landmark architecture of Empire State Building.

To see traveler tips, where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the New York City travel planner .

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 19°C in April, and nighttime lows around 8°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Sun) so you can drive to Brooklyn.

Though it may be less popular or touristy than its big brother Manhattan, Brooklyn boasts of one of the largest and hippest art districts in the United States.

Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: take a peaceful walk through Cold Spring Harbor State Park and then wander the streets of Williamsburg.
