Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Visit 9/11 Memorial and Masonic Temple for their historical value. Visiting Minnewaska State Park Preserve and Kelly Drive will get you outdoors. Explore New York City's surroundings by going to Society Hill (in Philadelphia), DM Weil Gallery (in New Paltz) and Valley Cottage (Rockland Lake State Park & Hook Mountain State Park). There's lots more to do: don't miss a visit to Fifth Avenue, browse the exhibits of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, explore the landscape on two wheels at Cynwyd Heritage Trail, and immerse yourself in nature at Gantry Plaza State Park.

For ratings, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our New York City online holiday planner.

Philadelphia to New York City is an approximately 2-hour train ride. You can also drive; or take a bus. In September, daytime highs in New York City are 80°F, while nighttime lows are 66°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Thu) so you can take a train back home.
