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 Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum and St. Patrick's Cathedral. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like William Floyd Estate and Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Bayard Cutting Arboretum (in Great River), Long Island Maritime Museum (in West Sayville) and Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt (in Hyde Park). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at New York Public Library, identify plant and animal life at Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge, take in the exciting artwork at Alex Ferrone Gallery, and steep yourself in history at Millbrook Village historic site.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 10°C in December, and nighttime lows around 2°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 2nd (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
