Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Explore hidden gems such as Sam's Point Preserve and Peconic River Herb Farm. Family-friendly places like Central Park and Cupsogue Beach County Park will thrill your kids. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park (in Poughkeepsie) and G. Steve Jordan Gallery (in New Paltz). There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, pause for some photo ops at Statue of Liberty National Monument, steep yourself in history at 9/11 Memorial, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Chelsea Market.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In June, plan for daily highs up to 31°C, and evening lows to 21°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
