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 Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Your inner history buff will appreciate Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site and The Met Cloisters. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New York City: Woodbury Common Premium Outlets (in Central Valley), Bushkill Falls (in Bushkill) and Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt (in Hyde Park). There's lots more to do: go for a walk through Central Park, get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History, get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and browse the exhibits of 9/11 Memorial.

To see reviews, where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our New York City trip planner.

September in New York City sees daily highs of 80°F and lows of 66°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
