Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Do your shopping at Fifth Avenue and Seaport District NYC. Take a break from the city and head to Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge and Hook Mountain State Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Appalachian Trail - Pochuck Boardwalk (in Glenwood), Bronx Zoo (in Bronx) and Demarest Nature Center (in Demarest). There's still lots to do: pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial, explore the landscape on two wheels at East River Waterfront Esplanade, get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History, and look for all kinds of wild species at Black Creek Preserve.

To see more things to do, ratings, maps, and more tourist information, read our New York City day trip planning website .

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 June, daytime highs in New York City are 31°C, while nighttime lows are 21°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
