I can honestly say this was my favourite trip we did in New York absolutely loved it would do it again and again. The experience of being in a Helicopter was fantastic and also the sound track that was played was very fitting and pilot was just great. It is a must if you can do it. Thank you so... More

Absolutely amazing experience!! It was our first helicopter flight and all the staff were lovely, especially the pilot who gave us a smooth flight and Santiago who allowed me to ride front seat. The tour ended our trip beautifully and anyone who visits New York should see the sights from a birds eye view, it is fabulous and unforgettable.

Definitely worth doing and the fact we used a groupon voucher we got the photo for free which saves some money, it's definitely worth getting the 18/20 mintute helicopter ride as its over so quickly but worth every penny, we were so blessed to go this Saturday as the weather was gorgeous for November, Dave the pilot was ever so...

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.
