This is an amazing experience and highly recommended. Our pilot was excellent - you can speak to them and ask questions during the flight. You will not find a better way to get views of the city than this.

We originally had no plans to do this but after seeing the helicopters from the Staten Island ferry, my husband suggested we have a go. I wasn't keen at first but decided to go for it as a one-off experience. We opted for the 15 mins ride, and I got to sit next to the pilot! It was nerve-wracking, but... More

Yeah Yeah Yeah, to the magical moments spent flying over the great sights of New York, Zip are the experts, our booking was right on time, the trip was perfect, saw everything one only dreams about. We can recommend 100 per cent, perhaps best company to go with. Best wishes from Ireland!

Absolutely loved this experience. I would recommend it to anyone. I hadn't flown in a helicopter before, so that in itself was exciting, however, just waiting to fly was exciting too. There's not just one helicopter coming and going, there are loads buzzing around, and it is a FAB atmosphere. Once up, the views were spectacular, the commentary was interesting,... 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.
