New York Helicopter Tour: Ultimate Manhattan Sightseeing

230 reviews
Avoid the congestion of New York City down on the ground, and take to the sky to see Manhattan during this NYC helicopter tour. Catch sight of the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, Central Park, George Washington Bridge, and many other top attractions without standing in line or sitting in traffic.

We went on the nature hike- For those trying to get out of the city on a weekend, I probably would not recommend the nature trail-- Reasons below: It veers on the side of the highway for a good 3/4 of a mile and then goes into the forest which is pretty isolated. The trails link up to the Croton Aqueduct but again, pretty far into the forest and not many people around. If you do head out on this trail- I'd recommend going in a group! Next time I think I'd try out the cross country trail !

back in the 1960's we used to go hiking and having fun fishing in the lake all the time. There were even some deer in the park back then and lots of carp in the lake as we used to sell them to the people hanging out at the lake for candy money later. great growing up in the north Bronx but even better getting old in Tucson AZ.

This is a gem to go to in the heart of Bronx, NY. It is very easy to get to on the metro, last stop on the red line. Beautiful green park with lots to do. Hiking, games, people were playing Lacrosse when I was there. There are several great aspects of the park to see. 1. Van Cortlandt Manor House, historic site with tours. 2. Grand Central Stones, which are located in the nearby woods. If you don’t know about them, look them up. Awesome story around them.

Participated in the hike only portion of this year’s Hike-tober fest and absolutely loved it! It was my first time experiencing Van Cortlandt Park as an adult. It will not be my last. For starters, the park is massive. And, it is beautiful... I mean beautiful. It’s landscape includes large, gorgeous trees, running streams, trails, etc. The Hike-tober fest organizers gave us three hike options from which to choose. My friends and I decided on the Cass Gallagher trail. This is because the guide described it as 1) covering a large area, 2) providing beautiful scenery and 3) giving us some altitude. Indeed it provided all three. However, we also learned about the park’s history, the trail itself and the different types of plants, trees, birds, insects and animals that call Van Cortlandt Park home. I was completely blown away by our experience and soooo happy we participated. We experienced a transformational and lovely journey. It didn’t even feel like we were in NYC. (let alone the Bronx) I highly recommend visiting Van Cortlandt Park. It’s just as, if not more, beautiful than Central Park, Prospect Park, etc...

right in the bronx you can visit this lovely green fun filled beautiful park. you can just relax and enjoy the peace and serenity of nature and chill. my kids was free to run around and enjoy nature at its best right in the middle of the city. you see people running, jogging, cycling, playing soccer, football, cricket, baseball ,hiking, walking or just sleeping. Wow we had so much fun to get away and relax for once. you can take a bus here or take the NYC transit subway to the last stop on the 1 or 4 train or simple just drive and find parking along the park. Enjoy this beautiful park and thank me later
