Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Museum-lovers will appreciate The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). Escape the urban bustle at Fire Island National Seashore and Ponquogue Beach. Explore New York City's surroundings by going to Bronx Zoo (in Bronx), Jones Beach State Park (in Wantagh) and Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge (in Oceanville). There's much more to do: shop like a local with Fifth Avenue, tour the water at your own pace with Narwhal Yacht Charters, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Hamilton Grange National Memorial, and make a trip to Times Square.

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 10°C in December, and nighttime lows around 2°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
