Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Top of the Rock, Frick Collection and Come From Away. You'll discover tucked-away gems like St. Patrick's Cathedral and Golden Fish Gallery. You'll explore and learn at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and New York Public Library. There's much more to do: make a trip to 9/11 Memorial, hunt for treasures at Chelsea Market, get a taste of the local shopping with SoHo, and go for a walk through Times Square.

To see traveler tips and tourist information, you can read our New York City trip itinerary 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. Expect a daytime high around 5°C in January, and nighttime lows around -5°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 3rd (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
