Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
You've added Cleopatra's Needle, Bethesda Terrace, Conservatory Garden, and other attractions to your itinerary. There's much more to do: enjoy breathtaking views from Empire State Building, browse the exhibits of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, stroll around Bryant Park, and get great views at Top of the Rock.

For maps, reviews, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our New York City online travel route 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. Expect a daytime high around 34°C in August, and nighttime lows around 25°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 21st (Wed) to allow time for travel back home.
