Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Get some cultural insight at Stone Church and 9/11 Memorial. Step off the beaten path and head to High Point Cross Country Ski Center and Black Creek Preserve. Explore New York City's surroundings by going to 8th Ave Jetty (in Asbury Park), Cornelia & Florence Bridge Nature Preserve (in Milford) and Cragsmoor (Ice Caves and Verkeerderkill Falls Trail Hike & Sam's Point Preserve). There's lots more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge, take in the awesome beauty at Shawangunk Mountains, contemplate the waterfront views at T.R. Gallo West Strand Park, and explore the striking landscape of Wertheim National Wildlife Refuge.

For ratings, other places to visit, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the New York City day trip site .

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. In January, plan for daily highs up to 5°C, and evening lows to -5°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
