Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Take a break from the city and head to East River Waterfront Esplanade and Hudson River Greenway. Your inner history buff will appreciate 9/11 Memorial and Hamilton Grange National Memorial. Step out of New York City to go to Patchogue and see Fire Island National Seashore, which is approximately 1h 20 min away. There's lots more to do: admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, wander the streets of Fifth Avenue, grab your bike and head to Manhattan Waterfront Greenway, and head outdoors with West Side Community Garden.

For traveler tips, ratings, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the New York City holiday planner.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In April, daily temperatures in New York City can reach 19°C, while at night they dip to 8°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
