Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Your inner history buff will appreciate 9/11 Memorial and Hamilton Grange National Memorial. Get outdoors at Bronx Zoo and East River Waterfront Esplanade. There's much more to do: go for a walk through Central Park, explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Paul's Chapel.

In January, daytime highs in New York City are 40°F, while nighttime lows are 24°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
