Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Museum-lovers will get to explore The Metropolitan Museum of Art and New York Public Library. Get some cultural insight at Times Square and American Museum of Natural History. When in New York City, make a side trip to see Bronx Zoo in Bronx, approximately Bronx away. And it doesn't end there: go for a walk through Central Park, appreciate the history behind Statue of Liberty National Monument, take in panoramic vistas at Empire State Building, and admire the masterpieces at Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.

For photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, use the New York City online journey planner.

Paris, France to New York City is an approximately 12-hour flight. Traveling from Paris to New York City, you'll gain 6 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Paris in July, expect New York City to be a bit warmer, temps between °C and °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Sat) early enough to travel to Boston.
