New York City

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
You've now added Friends Building to your itinerary. Step off the beaten path and head to Food Tours and Ground Zero Museum Workshop. Step out of New York City to go to Bronx and see New York Botanical Garden, which is approximately 30 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, go for a charming ride with a horse-drawn carriage tour, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, and capture your vacation like a pro with an inspiring photography tour.

To see photos, where to stay, traveler tips, and more tourist information, go to the New York City trip itinerary builder tool .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In January in New York City, expect temperatures between 5°C during the day and -5°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
