Highlight of my trip. First time on a helicopter, was a little nervous but didn't need to. Pilot was reassuring, fun, relaxed and informative. We saw EVERYTHING. Comfortable 25 minutes. What an awesome experience!

I'm a 14 year old and I had the time of my life. I was a little nervous but as soon as I stepped in the helicopter, I was already having fun!

Loved it, I flew with New York Helicopters on the 25min flight and it was so well worth the money. Takes you over down town and Manhattan. Lovely pilot and lovely staff. Worth every penny to see New York from high up. Take note that the shorter flights, fly a lot lower over the city, so I think hindsight, even... More

Another activity from a few years ago. The five of us walked down to the heli port for a tour over the Statue of Liberty, Central Park, the river and Brooklyn Bridge. A brilliant memory created from this event.

This was a fantastic tour over Manhattan that was made that much more enjoyable because of Tim the pilot. Tim was very informative and made the ride wonderful for even this nervous rider. I never imagine a helicopter ride was so smooth! The staff was very accommodating especially "Turtle" with his good sense of humor at the ticket counter. I... More

What a once in a lifetime experience to take a helicopter ride over New York City!! I had a spectacular ride on a beautiful autumn day, seeing the Freedom Tower, the Empire State Building and Central Park from above! My hotel assisted me in making a reservation on the morning I decided to go. You need to be there 30... 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.
