Although the trip was a bit shorter than 15 minutes, we did enjoy every second. I have to admit that it was the first time on a helicopter for the three of us. It only flies over the river though, perhaps for safety reasons, but the views and the sensations are great. The family picture should be included within the... More

We did this helicopter tour as part of our Graylines tour so we could get the aerial views of New York City. It was a fantastic experience. I commend the staff as their interaction with everyone waiting was excellent. I would like to draw peoples attention to the fact that if you buy this as part of a package tour... More

We purchased out tickets through the City Sightseeing tour office and were advised to be there early for our slot at 12:00 with the safety checks and demonstrations etc we boarded the helicopter at around 13:30 which is understandable as it was very busy and we had booked the longer 20 minute tour. The staff were very friendly and helpful.... More

That was one of my favorite things I have done when visited New York. The helicopter took us from The Statue of Liberty to the Yankees Stadium and then back to the pier

Having walked as part of a guided tour of a lot of Lower Manhattan the day before we had built up a good knowledge. We were impressed with the ride itself but it felt a little like a cattle market in the reception previously. It took a full 45 minutes from getting to the building to go through many phases...

I've been to New York 3 times before but have never done this. This was my boyfriend's first visit to the States. Whilst the price looks expensive for such a short amount of time, it is 100% worth it! The staff were helpful and pleasant from before I booked the tickets, to finishing the experience on the day, Our pilot... More

We bought tickets online and came half hour before the flight. We had to wait a bit in line but when we took off it was all forgotten. The views from Helicopter are just too amazing and every other small problems become history. Our pilot was very nice and we had a perfect weather for great pictures. If you are... 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.
