Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Head to Fifth Avenue and West Villagefor some retail therapy. Your inner history buff will appreciate 9/11 Memorial and Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New York City: Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge (in Oceanville), Teatown Lake Reservation (in Ossining) and Mianus River Gorge Preserve (in Bedford). There's lots more to do: take in the pleasant sights at Times Square, walk around Central Park, explore the world behind art at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), and don't miss a visit to Empire State Building.

For traveler tips, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the New York City trip planner .

If you are flying in from Puerto Rico, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In May, daily temperatures in New York City can reach 24°C, while at night they dip to 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
