Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum and The Met Cloisters. Your inner history buff will appreciate Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt and Brooklyn Heights Promenade. Venture out of the city with trips to Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site (in Hyde Park) and New York Botanical Garden (in Bronx). The adventure continues: wander the streets of Washington Square Park, explore the world behind art at Frick Collection, take in the pleasant sights at Times Square, and see the interesting displays at Ground Zero Museum Workshop.

For more things to do, ratings, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our New York City sightseeing planning website .

December in New York City sees daily highs of 48°F and lows of 36°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
