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 Alex Ferrone Gallery and Golden Fish Gallery. Get some cultural insight at Times Square and Hudson Beach Glass. Get out of town with these interesting New York City side-trips: Catskill Park (in Sundown), Hawk's Nest Highway (in Port Jervis) and Upper Delaware River (in Narrowsburg). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Cooper's Beach, appreciate the history behind 9/11 Memorial, step off the mainland to explore Fire Island National Seashore, and explore and take pictures at Central Park.

To find traveler tips, more things to do, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our New York City sightseeing planning tool .

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 19°C in April, and nighttime lows around 8°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
