Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Upper Delaware River and Bushkill Falls. Step out of the city life by going to T.R. Gallo West Strand Park and Cornelia & Florence Bridge Nature Preserve. Explore New York City's surroundings by going to Minnewaska State Park Preserve (in Kerhonkson) and Raymondskill Falls (in Milford). There's still lots to do: browse the exhibits of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, see the interesting displays at The Morgan Library & Museum, and take in the pleasant sights at Central Park.

To see more things to do, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read New York City travel planner.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In May, daily temperatures in New York City can reach 24°C, while at night they dip to 15°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 27th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
