Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Take a break from the city and head to Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge and East River Waterfront Esplanade. Head to Fifth Avenue and FAO Schwarzfor some retail therapy. Get out of town with these interesting New York City side-trips: Apshawa Preserve (in West Milford), Hook Mountain State Park (in Valley Cottage) and Appalachian Trail - Pochuck Boardwalk (in Glenwood). There's lots more to do: stroll around Central Park, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Hamilton Grange National Memorial, explore the landscape on two wheels at Manhattan Waterfront Greenway, and enjoy breathtaking views from Empire State Building.

If you are flying in from Iceland, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In September, daily temperatures in New York City can reach 31°C, while at night they dip to 22°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 7th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
