I was terrified at first but I wanted to overcome my fears. It didn't take long for the fear to turn into pure fun. It was magical looking at New York from this unique perspective. Would definitely do again! Janet Peterson

A helicopter tour of Manhattan helicopter is definitely worth the money, it's an experience everyone should indulge yourself, it was an incredible experience to fly over Manhattan. All staff members were very professional and the pilot very informative and competent. we still had goose bumps after a wonderful trip.

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!

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!

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.
