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 Shopping Girlfriend NYC. The Metropolitan Museum of Art and 9/11 Memorial are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with a short trip to Bronx Zoo in Bronx (about 36 minutes away). And it doesn't end there: tour the water at your own pace with Narwhal Yacht Charters, explore the activities along The Pond, browse the exhibits of Ellis Island, and meet the residents at Central Park Zoo.

To see where to stay, more things to do, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the New York City trip builder app .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 16°C in November, and nighttime lows around 7°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
