Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Central Park and American Museum of Natural History. Go for a jaunt from New York City to Bronx to see Bronx Zoo about 36 minutes away. There's lots more to do: explore the galleries of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, admire the landmark architecture of Empire State Building, take in the pleasant sights at The High Line, and examine the collection at New York Public Library.

To see where to stay, ratings, other places to visit, and more tourist information, use the New York City trip itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Netherlands, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In May in New York City, expect temperatures between 24°C during the day and 15°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
