Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Kids will enjoy Central Park and American Museum of Natural History. Go for a jaunt from New York City to Bronx to see Bronx Zoo about 36 minutes away. There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, take in the pleasant sights at The High Line, admire the landmark architecture of Empire State Building, and take in panoramic vistas at Top of the Rock.

To see traveler tips, reviews, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our New York City trip 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 October in New York City, expect temperatures between 24°C during the day and 16°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 9th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
