Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Shop till you drop at Fifth Avenue and Tiffany & Co.. You'll explore and learn at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and New York Public Library. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge (in Oceanville) and Bronx Zoo (in Bronx). And it doesn't end there: pause for some photo ops at 9/11 Memorial, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Central Park Zoo, admire all the interesting features of Central Park, and explore the activities along Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir.

If you are flying in from Italy, 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 5th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
