Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
9/11 Memorial and Kadampa Meditation Center New York and World Peace Temple will appeal to history buffs. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum and Time and the Valleys Museum. Explore New York City's surroundings by going to Hawk's Nest Highway (in Port Jervis), Hudson Beach Glass (in Beacon) and Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park (in Poughkeepsie). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History, explore the activities along Upper Delaware River, and browse the exhibits of Ellis Island.

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. May in New York City sees daily highs of 24°C and lows of 15°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
