Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Let the collections at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Ellis Island capture your imagination. For shopping fun, head to Fifth Avenue or Josefinas. Get out of town with these interesting New York City side-trips: Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge (in Oceanville) and Bronx Zoo (in Bronx). There's still lots to do: appreciate the history behind 9/11 Memorial, take a stroll through Times Square, grab your bike and head to East River Waterfront Esplanade, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Central Park Zoo.

For maps, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our New York City online tour planner .

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. Expect a daytime high around 9°C in February, and nighttime lows around -1°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 23rd (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
