Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Popular historic sites such as 9/11 Memorial and St. Patrick's Cathedral are in your itinerary. Get some cultural insight at Times Square and Fifth Avenue. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New York City: Hook Mountain State Park (in Valley Cottage), Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge (in Oceanville) and Demarest Nature Center (in Demarest). There's lots more to do: explore the landscape on two wheels at East River Waterfront Esplanade, admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, tour the pleasant surroundings at Manhattan Waterfront Greenway, and go for a walk through Central Park.

For ratings, maps, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the New York City journey planner .

If you are flying in from South Africa, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. In November, daily temperatures in New York City can reach 16°C, while at night they dip to 7°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
