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 Birdland, Grand Central Terminal, Greenwich Village, and other attractions you added. There's more to do: take a stroll through Times Square and browse the eclectic array of goods at Chelsea Market.

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

San Jose to New York City is an approximately 9-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and bus; or drive.
