Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Do some cultural sightseeing at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). 9/11 Memorial and The Discovery of King Tut will appeal to museum buffs. Step out of New York City to go to Atlantic Highlands and see Mount Mitchill Scenic Overlook, which is approximately 42 minutes away. There's lots more to do: grab your bike and head to East River Waterfront Esplanade, explore the striking landscape of Hamilton Grange National Memorial, tour the pleasant surroundings at Manhattan Waterfront Greenway, and take a memorable tour with Tours.

October in New York City sees daily highs of 24°C and lows of 16°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
