Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Visit Gateway National Recreation and Fire Island National Seashore for some beach relaxation. Get some historical perspective at 9/11 Memorial and Hamilton Grange National Memorial. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Jones Beach State Park (in Wantagh), Jenkinson's Boardwalk (in Point Pleasant Beach) and Teatown Lake Reservation (in Ossining). There's still lots to do: meet the residents at Bronx Zoo, take a stroll through Times Square, don't miss a visit to Central Park, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Central Park Zoo.

For more things to do, maps, photos, and other tourist information, read our New York City travel planner.

If you are flying in from India, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In January in New York City, expect temperatures between 5°C during the day and -5°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
