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 The Metropolitan Museum of Art and 9/11 Memorial. Escape the urban bustle at Horse-Drawn Carriage Tours and Schuylkill River Trail. Go for a jaunt from New York City to Kerhonkson to see Minnewaska State Park Preserve about 1h 50 min away. There's much more to do: shop like a local with Fifth Avenue, wander the streets of Times Square, admire the masterpieces at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), and take in the pleasant sights at Central Park.

For photos, reviews, and tourist information, read New York City trip planner.

December in New York City sees daily highs of °F and lows of °F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 1st (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
