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 St. Paul's Chapel are in your itinerary. Do some cultural sightseeing at St. Patrick's Cathedral and Statue of Liberty National Monument. The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at New York Public Library, walk around World Trade Center's Liberty Park, pause for some photo ops at The Oculus, and contemplate the long history of Ellis Island.

To see reviews, photos, maps, and tourist information, refer to the New York City vacation site.

Stockholm, Sweden to New York City is an approximately 12- hour combination of flight and train. You can also do a combination of flight, train, and subway; or fly. You'll gain 6 hours traveling from Stockholm to New York City due to the time zone difference. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from Stockholm in June, with highs in New York City at 31°C and lows at 21°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Tue) early enough to go by car to Albany.
