Wow! What a great experience! I have been to NYC many times and never took the time to do a helicopter tour. Just awesome! Picture perfect day and beautiful views of the area made for a very different perspective of how you view this great city. We flew with a very professional pilot in a NEW $4.7 million helicopter.

Went on the 25 minute tour - it was fantastic - one of those once in a life things. The views are amazing, the helicopter ride is great - music on the tour perfect. Would love to do this again

Was lucky enough to have Andrew Woods show us around New York, was definitely a highlight of the trip and would recommend everyone visiting New York contacting Zip Aviation. Without a doubt a must see experience. Andrew has a great Irish sense of humour and would do anything to make your experience memorable.

As parents we know it can be tricky to "wow" teenagers but I have to say that a helicopter ride over New York is a certain winner. This is the most amazing way to enjoy the skyline and the staff and crew at Zip were brilliant. As a family of 4 we got a helicopter to ourselves and all of... More

Staying in Financial District

Neighborhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
