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. Relax by the water at Ocean Grove Beach and Point Lookout Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Ponquogue Beach (in Hampton Bays), Joel L. Lefkowitz Park at West Meadow Beach (in Stony Brook) and Lido Beach (in Lido Beach). There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, get some thrills on the water with a speed boat tour, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and go for a walk through Central Park.

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 35°C in July, and nighttime lows around 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
