Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
You'll explore and learn at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Ellis Island. Visit Ocean Grove Beach and Great Neck Steppingstone Park for some beach relaxation. Get out of town with these interesting New York City side-trips: Valley Cottage (Rockland Lake State Park & Hook Mountain State Park) and Bronx Zoo (in Bronx). There's much more to do: go for a walk through Central Park, pause for some photo ops at Statue of Liberty National Monument, make a trip to Empire State Building, and take a stroll through Times Square.

If you are flying in from Saudi Arabia, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. May in New York City sees daily highs of 24°C and lows of 15°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
