Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
New York City is known for museums, nightlife, shopping, historic sites, and parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, admire the striking features of Rockefeller Center, make a trip to Empire State Building, and explore the galleries of The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

You'll gain 15 hours traveling from Melbourne to New York City due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Melbourne in July, expect New York City to be warmer, temps between 35°C and 26°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Fri) early enough to travel to Los Angeles.
