Borough of Trees

Though it may be less popular or touristy than its big brother Manhattan, Brooklyn boasts of one of the largest and hippest art districts in the United States.
Start off your visit on the 21st (Sat): appreciate the extensive heritage of Brooklyn Heights Promenade, then stop by Dumbo, then take in the views from Brooklyn Bridge, and finally browse the exhibits of Brooklyn Museum. Here are some ideas for day two: look for gifts at Mast Brothers, take in the waterfront at Coney Island, and then buy something for everyone on your list at Roosevelt Field.

To find reviews, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Brooklyn tour planning site.

New York City

Big Apple

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Tiffany & Co. and Jangmi. Museum-lovers will appreciate 9/11 Memorial and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Times Square, enjoy breathtaking views from Empire State Building, take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, and get great views at Top of the Rock.

To plan New York City vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

New York City is very close to Brooklyn. In December, daytime highs in New York City are 10°C, while nighttime lows are 2°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 1st (Wed) so you can travel back home.
