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 Brooklyn Bridge as well as Coney Island USA. Museum-lovers will appreciate The Metropolitan Museum of Art and 9/11 Memorial. Take a break from the city and head to Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge and Hook Mountain State Park. And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at New York Public Library, look for all kinds of wild species at Hallett Nature Sanctuary, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and explore the landscape on two wheels at East River Waterfront Esplanade.

To find more things to do, reviews, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our New York City trip itinerary builder tool .

In May, daily temperatures in New York City can reach 69°F, while at night they dip to 55°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 19th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
