Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Step off the beaten path and head to St. Patrick's Cathedral and Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum. For shopping fun, head to Woodbury Common Premium Outlets or Chelsea Market. Take a break from New York City with a short trip to Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt in Hyde Park, about 1h 50 min away. There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of The Met Cloisters, examine the collection at New York Public Library, admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and appreciate the history behind 9/11 Memorial.

For traveler tips, more things to do, photos, and more tourist information, read our New York City sightseeing planner .

In February, plan for daily highs up to 46°F, and evening lows to 29°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
