This is the best way to see New York. This 20 minute trip was the high light of our time in the Big Apple and well worth every penny. The views were fantastic, the staff were great. It is a definite must do experience!

This was our first time to New York and thought a helicopter tour would be a great thing to do. The tour itself was ok BUT no not buy the online video. We paid around $65 USD for the video and did not receive it. What a surprise.... I have emailed Manhattan Helicopters twice now about it and of course... More

Had a great time. It was so relaxing yet exciting. Loved seeing the Statue of Liberty up close. The staff was friendly and courteous. Felt safe at all times. Next time I would do 30 minute tour, but 15 minute tour was perfect for first time!

My daughter and I shared 20 minutes of pure happiness in NYC sky! It's a dream came true. Manhattan, Brooklyn, New Jersey seen from birds' eyes. What a trip! It's absolutely beautiful. All those buildings. One World Trade Center almost made me cry. I love to fly; I loved that flight; My daughter was so excited and happy! Thanks to... More

This was our 4 time in NYC and a helicopter tour we had not done yet. For my wife it was the first time in a helicopter and for me the 4th time. Maybe that's why she liked it more then me. The 15 min flight was only 13 min. We had a clear sky. The flight goes so fast... More

This was an exciting way to see NYC. We saw everything from the 9-11 Memorial Pools to Harlem's Apollo Theatre and Yankee Statium in the Bronx. Doesn't get as close to the Statue of Liberty as I thought it would. Great commentary and a fun pilot!

Really well organised from arrival, through security to departure and back again. A very smooth (albeit quick) trip but you see all that you need to see from some fantastic angles. It's not cheap but is a once in a lifetime opportunity that I am so glad we took. Customer Service pre flight was great and it really couldn't have... More

Sights were great....I think. I wouldn't really know because the audio portion of our tour didn't work so we had no idea what we were looking at. When complaining to the company about no audio and asking for a 50% refund or some type of credit, we were offered a $30 picture for free. REALLY?! I have tried contacting them... 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.
