I booked this trip well in advance and found Liberty Helicopters via The New York Pass website. The New York pass gets you a discount on what is quite a pricey flight. It was my 60th birthday treat so thought it worth it. First time in New York and first time in a helicopter. The weather could not have been... More

This is the fast way to get aquainted with the Big Apple! Book this spectacular sightseeing the very first day you arrive in NY and you will have an overview of the city. Informative and serviceminded personnel

Visited over the last few days with my 13 year old son. Booking was all very easy, called up 24 hours prior to confirm the flight was going ahead as the weather took a miserable turn but absolutely no problems. Check in was well organised, be aware there is a $35 heliport tax, we knew about this so didn't cause... More

I was lucky enough to ge given this trip as a present. You need to book a slot in advance if you can. We flew out over Liberty and Ellis Islands then up the Hudson River beyond George Washington Bridge before coming back at a slightly lower height so got two different profiles of the skyline. Back seats at left... More

Our helicopter flight was supposed to be a highlight of our trip to NYC. We went through check-in process ok. We had a bit of a wait but nothing too bad. I finished sitting in the back middle left hand side (4 seats across) my friend was by the window. Going out all the commentary was for the city on... More

Cancelled flight with no apology or information. Rude staff, unhelpful, flew next day and Rudeness personified. Use a different service if you want this experience. Felt totally ripped off, even charging 5 dollars for a locker for 15 minutes to store valuables. Lots of add on's. Spoilt an otherwise good experience.

Hi Carl, I read that you were disappointed with your tour. I am sorry to read this. Could you please provide me with additional information as you dont get into any detail as to who was rude to you and what they did specifically that was rude. Did you inform the heliport manager of your disappointment? If so what was... More

We had an amazing time doing the big apple tour.. it's only 15 mins but you see so much so, so it's enough. We were lucky to have a sunny day, the pilot gave a great commentary of the main sights and the staff were all pleasant - would recommend it to anyone.

Great experience, easy to deal with company. We arrived early as the other attraction in this area was closed on the day. To enable us to save time and fit more into our trip, they brought our flight forward. Only down side- space was tight with 3 adults in the back and was a little difficult to take photos.

Reading the (very few) bad reviews on here made me nervous that this wouldn't be a good trip. But it was an amazing experience and the staff were all wonderful. We were quickly scanned at check in, given a locker for free and paid the security fee which we were well aware of. We had arrived early for our 2pm... 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.
