They rescheduled us for a perfect time knowing we would be leaving town. Allowed us to move ahead of line since we had to reschedule. Tour was... More

I can not stress how much this is worth doing! Seeing this amazing city from the air was just fantastic! As for the people that say it costs a lot and doesn't last very long, yes it is relatively expensive, but it's not cheap running helicopters, and as for the length of flight, we went for the New York New...

The view from Manhattan from up in the air is priceless. Liberty is sort of a factory. They are extremely efficient in getting you in, up and out. You hear what the pilot hears which was a little weird at times because it was more clear than what the pilot was pointing out. No matter, you can turn it on... More

I was taking a solo trip to New York and saw that a 15 min flight over the River was only $150 so I decided to purchase it. When I got there, they were extremely accommodating and helped me with a small issue I had and made sure that I enjoyed the flight. All the employees were very helpful, genuinely... More

My wife booked this helicopter trip before we came to NYC. 'Go on', she said, 'it'll be the trip of a lfetime'! She booked me and the two kids on it but not herself, citing a fear of heights. She really lost out, let me tell you. Not good with heights myself, I can categorically say it is not a... 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.
