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. When in New York City, make a side trip to see Bronx Zoo in Bronx, approximately 36 minutes away. There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, take in panoramic vistas at Empire State Building, don't miss a visit to Rockefeller Center, and take some stellar pictures from Top of the Rock.

To find photos, where to stay, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our New York City online sightseeing planner .

If you are flying in from Thailand, 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 20th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
