Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Take a break from the city and head to Gateway National Recreation and Hamilton Grange National Memorial. Do your shopping at Fifth Avenue and Kalustyan's. Step out of New York City with an excursion to Bronx Zoo in Bronx--about 42 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, see the interesting displays at 9/11 Memorial, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and explore the activities along Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir.

To find ratings, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the New York City trip itinerary website .

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. Expect a daytime high around 11°C in December, and nighttime lows around 3°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
