Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Shop till you drop at Fifth Avenue and Tiffany & Co.. Visiting Fire Island National Seashore and Central Park Zoo will get you outdoors. When in New York City, make a side trip to see Bronx Zoo in Bronx, approximately 36 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, go for a walk through Times Square, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and contemplate the waterfront views at The Pond.

For traveler tips, reviews, maps, and more tourist information, go to the New York City road trip site .

If you are flying in from Mongolia, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In December, daytime highs in New York City are 10°C, while nighttime lows are 2°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 26th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
