7 hours in Newark Airport...

Hi All,

in early January I will have 7 hours in transit through Newark from a domestic flight to an international (landing 10.30 am, taking off 6pm). I'm thinking that this might give me enough time to get in some birding, either somewhere close to the airport, or by heading into NYC for a quick dash around Central Park.

Am I being over optimistic? If not, where would you recommend going?

Thanks

Dave
