What an incredible experience to do and a way to see NYC. I have been to NYC a few times before but finally took the plunge with my boyfriend (first timer to NYC) to see the sights via a helicopter. I was nervous about the price at first, then upon booking I was so excited and it turns out this... More

When choosing Helicopter tours of New York it seems to be somewhat of a competitive market place. The tours also seem to be very expensive. I found the staff at Manhattan to be great, our female pilot was absolutely fantastic. The tour took us up over the hudson. The Bose headsets provided respite from the rotor noise and a perfect...

A very professional but friendly reception was the prelude to a fabulous experience. At first I thought that 20 minutes would be more than enough but in the end we wanted it to carry on. We felt safe and extremely well treated. Geoff, the pilot, was good fun and clearly knew how to fly a chopper. We hope he had... More

Nicely appointed interior, well maintained vehicle. We had a quick but enjoyable tour in the air of Manhattan, Statue of Liberty and Jersey City. Pilot was experienced but told corny jokes like it was his first time going up. Fun seeing the big apple from a different perspective.

My husband surprised me with a birthday helicopter tour of NY. There were 6 people (plus pilot) including my husband and I in the helicopter. We didn't get a choice of where we sat which was disappointing as I had the worst seat in the middle!! Not the best for a special birthday treat. The pilot was lovely and chatted... More

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.
