Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Get a sense of the local culture at Fifth Avenue and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at West Village and Chelsea Market. Get out of town with these interesting New York City side-trips: Gateway National Recreation (in Sandy Hook), Jenkinson's Boardwalk (in Point Pleasant Beach) and Ponquogue Beach (in Hampton Bays). There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Times Square, appreciate the history behind Statue of Liberty National Monument, steep yourself in history at Ellis Island, and make a trip to Wall Street.

For traveler tips, reviews, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the New York City sightseeing app .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In August in New York City, expect temperatures between 34°C during the day and 25°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 18th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
