Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
New York City is known for museums, nightlife, shopping, historic sites, and parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: admire all the interesting features of Central Park, enjoy breathtaking views from Empire State Building, don't miss a visit to Times Square, and appreciate the history behind 9/11 Memorial.

For maps, where to stay, other places to visit, and tourist information, read our New York City trip planner .

In September, daytime highs in New York City are 80°F, while nighttime lows are 66°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
