Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like 9/11 Memorial and Hamilton Grange National Memorial. Visiting East River Waterfront Esplanade and Hallett Nature Sanctuary will get you outdoors. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Bronx Zoo (in Bronx) and Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge (in Oceanville). Next up on the itinerary: wander the streets of Times Square, don't miss a visit to Central Park, grab your bike and head to Hudson River Greenway, and shop like a local with Fifth Avenue.

For ratings, photos, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the New York City attractions planning website .

In April, daytime highs in New York City are 61°F, while nighttime lows are 45°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
