Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Get some historical perspective at Gateway National Recreation and Ellis Island. For shopping fun, head to Fifth Avenue or Astor Wines & Spirits. Explore New York City's surroundings by going to Teatown Lake Reservation (in Ossining), Bronx Zoo (in Bronx) and Wolf Conservation Center (in South Salem). There's lots more to do: take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, head off the coast to Fire Island National Seashore, immerse yourself in nature at Jones Beach State Park, and explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

For ratings, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the New York City day trip planning site .

If you are flying in from Finland, 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 9°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
