Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
For shopping fun, head to Fifth Avenue or The Strand Bookstore. Museum-lovers will appreciate The Metropolitan Museum of Art and American Museum of Natural History. Step out of New York City with an excursion to Sleepy Hollow in Tarrytown--about 50 minutes away. There's still lots to do: pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial, shop like a local with Tiles For America, enjoy breathtaking views from Empire State Building, and see the interesting displays at New York Public Library.

For photos, where to stay, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the New York City trip itinerary maker website .

Expect a daytime high around 19°C in April, and nighttime lows around 8°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 5th (Sun) so you can go by car to Brooklyn.
