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 explore the less-touristy side of things at High Point Cross Country Ski Center and Kadampa Meditation Center New York and World Peace Temple. Get out of town with these interesting New York City side-trips: Catskill Distilling Company (in Bethel), Peters Valley Gallery (in Layton) and Upper Delaware River (in Narrowsburg). There's much more to do: take in the views from Roebling Aqueduct Suspension Bridge, look for gifts at Golden Fish Gallery, go for a walk through Jakes Branch County Park, and take in the awesome beauty at Shawangunk Mountains.

To see more things to do, where to stay, photos, and tourist information, you can read our New York City online visit planner .

If you are flying in from Hong Kong, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 5°C in January, and nighttime lows around -5°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 14th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
