If you can do this in New York while visiting I would highly recommend it. The views were amazing of the city while flying up to Central Park over the Hudson. Flying round Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island were amazing. Worth every penny for that 15/20mins

I did the short tour and It was amazing. The view you get is the best one you can get from the city. The view is much better that the view from WTC1, the plane when you land at JFK or the one from the Empire State. I have done it twice and I always recomend it. Staff are nice... More

We did this on my 30th birthday so it was a great way to start the day off. The helicopter is a bit of a squeeze as 4 people have to fit in the back, I was lucky enough to be in one of the window seats and had an amazing view. The day was relatively clear so I got... More

Really enjoyed the whole experience. January meant it was quiet so only had to wait 5 mins and we were into the briefing room ! Had paid upfront through Liberty's own website and no extras to pay when we arrived (we'd read stories about charging extra for heliport and locker fees but we weren't charged anything). We went for the... More

I'm not a fan of flying. But everyone assured me helicopters felt different to planes. They were right. This was amazing from the moment we went out on the helipad to board the helicopter. We chose the longer flight. I think it was 18-20 minutes and went all the way up Manhattan island before turning around. Was especially blown away... More

My Christmas present to my fiancée which we shared proved to be a wonderful 20 minute experience flying over the Hudson River beneath clear blue and sunny skies. New York's skyline was just breathtaking. The helicopter seating 6 was as comfortable as a helicopter can be and our pilot was excellent, friendly and amusing. It is not cheap but worth... More

Wonderful trip and service from all the staff. Very friendly guy boarded us, a very nervous Mum and my excited teenage kids. James was a very interesting guide throughout. An unforgettable family experience. Thank you.

I prebooked this excursion via expedia while planning our NY trip and was a little disappointed I hadnt shopped around. The pilot seemed rushed and couldnt wait for his shift to be over. (Actually mentioned it to us) I understand it would be repetitive taking people up for 12mins and back down all day but im sure he earns enough... More

We had a helicopter ride bought for us as a gift for our trip to New York. It was a good experience as I hadn't been in a helicopter before but the flight was short and we were cramped in with four other passengers for the journey. I wouldn't do it again and probably wouldn't have done it if it... 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.
