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 St. Patrick's Cathedral for their historical value. Head to Fifth Avenue and The Strand Bookstorefor some retail therapy. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Bronx Zoo (in Bronx) and Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge (in Oceanville). There's lots more to do: admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, get a taste of the local shopping with Shopping Girlfriend NYC, grab your bike and head to East River Waterfront Esplanade, and explore the galleries of Tiles For America.

For traveler tips, ratings, more things to do, and more tourist information, use the New York City journey site .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In March, daily temperatures in New York City can reach 11°C, while at night they dip to 1°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
