Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Step out of New York City with an excursion to Bronx Zoo in Bronx--about 36 minutes away. There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to Central Park, take in the pleasant sights at The High Line, admire the landmark architecture of Empire State Building, and get great views at Top of the Rock.

To find maps, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, use the New York City road trip planning site .

If you are flying in from New Zealand, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In October, daily temperatures in New York City can reach 24°C, while at night they dip to 16°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
