Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Central Park, Chelsea Market and St. Patrick's Cathedral. And it doesn't end there: take in panoramic vistas at Empire State Building, admire the striking features of Grand Central Terminal, take some stellar pictures from Top of the Rock, and appreciate the history behind Statue of Liberty National Monument.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, more things to do, and more tourist information, use the New York City trip itinerary planning app .

Expect a daytime high around 69°F in May, and nighttime lows around 55°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 14th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
