Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Let the collections at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and American Museum of Natural History capture your imagination. Get some historical perspective at 9/11 Memorial and Ellis Island. Take a break from New York City with a short trip to Bronx Zoo in Bronx, about 36 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Times Square, make a trip to Hamilton Grange National Memorial, admire the masterpieces at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), and pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral.

To see traveler tips, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, use the New York City trip itinerary maker website .

If you are flying in from Kuwait, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 10°C in December, and nighttime lows around 2°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Wed) so you can travel back home.
