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 Riverside Park, The Pig & Whistle on 36th, Madison Square Park, and other attractions to your itinerary. Next up on the itinerary: take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, tour the pleasant surroundings at Bryant Park, admire the landmark architecture of Rockefeller Center, and admire the masterpieces at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).

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 December, plan for daily highs up to 10°C, and evening lows to 2°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
