Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Museum-lovers will get to explore The Metropolitan Museum of Art and American Museum of Natural History. Visiting Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge and Bronx Zoo will get you outdoors. There's still lots to do: appreciate the history behind 9/11 Memorial, take in nature's colorful creations at Hallett Nature Sanctuary, take a stroll through Times Square, and take in the pleasant sights at Central Park.

In May in New York City, expect temperatures between 24°C during the day and 15°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
