New York City

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Popular historic sites such as 9/11 Memorial and Hamilton Grange National Memorial are in your itinerary. Let the collections at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and American Museum of Natural History capture your imagination. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New York City: Minnewaska State Park Preserve (in Kerhonkson), Schunnemunk State Park (in New Windsor) and Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge (in Oceanville). And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Times Square, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, explore the landscape on two wheels at East River Waterfront Esplanade, and take a memorable tour with Tours.

To see where to stay, photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, you can read our New York City travel planner.

If you are flying in from Bangladesh, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 10°C in December, and nighttime lows around 2°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
