Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Visit 9/11 Memorial and Ellis Island for their historical value. Head to Fifth Avenue and Chelsea Marketfor plenty of shopping. There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, take in panoramic vistas at Empire State Building, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and go for a walk through Times Square.

To see more things to do, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our New York City journey maker site .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In December, plan for daily highs up to 10°C, and evening lows to 2°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
