The prices for heli flights over NYC are not a bargain, but one must have seen the big apple from above! The concrete canyons of the island of Manhattan will be impressive and the wide green plain of the Central park is just fantastic. This is a view to remember

Booked this as a surprise on my partners birthday- staff were lovely and enthusiastic, the helicopter ride itself was superb- i had ooked the 18-20 minute ride and we both though this was plenty, the shorter one would have been over too quick and you didnt need any longer. I thought there could have been more documentary from the pilot.... More

I booked a 20 minute helicopter experience as a surprise for my wife to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. It was a fantastic experience and a great way to see the city. It is somewhat expensive but worth every penny. In terms of getting there,we took the subway to South Ferry and when you come out of the station... More

Turned up on the afternoon of the 10th only to find the new York helicopter company, who we had booked with had gone home due to the fact it had rained during the night and the morning. By pure chance and as we were so disappointed, we spoke to a guy working for Liberty Helicopters who was outside their office.... More

The duration is at the minimum end of their advertised timings. It is almost impossible to make out what little commentary their is . You are hardly ever over land as you fly up and down the Hudson. Not recommended.

We booked this in May last year for our upcoming visit to New York. It had been my daughter (22) life long ambition to go there, so we went for new year and what an amazing trip. This was topped off by this truly magical trip on the helicopter. Neither myself or my daughter liked heights but the staff were... 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.
