Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Statue of Liberty National Monument are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like 9/11 Memorial and Trinity Church. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge (in Oceanville), Sands Point Preserve (in Port Washington) and Steep Rock Reservation (in Washington Depot). And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Times Square, contemplate the long history of Ellis Island, explore the world behind art at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), and enjoy breathtaking views from Top of the Rock.

To see more things to do, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our New York City online holiday maker .

In July in New York City, expect temperatures between 86°F during the day and 72°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
