Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Appreciate the collections at 9/11 Memorial and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Popular historic sites such as Ellis Island and St. Paul's Chapel are in your itinerary. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge (in Oceanville), Henry Hudson Trail (in Marlboro) and Hook Mountain State Park (in Valley Cottage). And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at East River Waterfront Esplanade, admire the majestic nature at Minnewaska State Park Preserve, go for a walk through Central Park, and admire the landmark architecture of Empire State Building.

To find traveler tips, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the New York City trip planning tool .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In October, plan for daily highs up to 24°C, and evening lows to 16°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
