Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Statue of Liberty National Monument. Bronx Zoo and Ellis Island will appeal to museum buffs. Next up on the itinerary: pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial, see the interesting displays at New York Public Library, learn more about the world around you at American Museum of Natural History, and explore the world behind art at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).

In May, plan for daily highs up to 69°F, and evening lows to 55°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
