Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Appreciate the collections at 9/11 Memorial and American Museum of Natural History. Do some cultural sightseeing at Times Square and Ellis Island. Next up on the itinerary: don't miss a visit to Fifth Avenue, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, admire the masterpieces at The Museum of Modern Art, and stroll through Central Park.

To see maps, where to stay, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our New York City trip planner .

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 December, daily temperatures in New York City can reach 10°C, while at night they dip to 2°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
