Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Upper Delaware River and Frick Collection. Step out of the city life by going to Worthington State Forest and Pocono Environmental Education Center. Venture out of the city with trips to Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm (in Stroudsburg), William Floyd Estate (in Mastic Beach) and Zane Grey Museum (in Lackawaxen). And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at New York Public Library, immerse yourself in nature at Swartswood State Park, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kadampa Meditation Center New York and World Peace Temple, and step off the mainland to explore Fire Island National Seashore.

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. Expect a daytime high around 19°C in April, and nighttime lows around 9°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
