Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Visiting Bronx Zoo and Quogue Wildlife Refuge will get you outdoors. Kids will appreciate attractions like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Teatown Lake Reservation. Change things up with these side-trips from New York City: Mianus River Gorge Preserve (in Bedford), Franklin Lakes Nature Preserve (in Franklin Lakes) and Eagle Rock Reservation (in West Orange). There's still lots to do: appreciate the history behind 9/11 Memorial, take an in-depth tour of Ellis Island, tour the pleasant surroundings at Central Park Zoo, and take in the pleasant sights at Times Square.

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In April, plan for daily highs up to 19°C, and evening lows to 8°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
