Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
For shopping fun, head to Golden Fish Gallery or Chelsea Market. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at High Point Cross Country Ski Center and Shawangunk Mountains. Explore New York City's surroundings by going to Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge (in Oceanville), Hawk's Nest Highway (in Port Jervis) and 8th Ave Jetty (in Asbury Park). The adventure continues: Head underground at Stone Church, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, admire the natural beauty at Great Neck Steppingstone Park, and make a trip to Times Square.

December in New York City sees daily highs of 10°C and lows of 2°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
