Full description
Just a short train ride from Manhattan's Penn Station, welcome to Linden, NJ where Helicopter Flight Services will pick you up to begin your evening NYC flight adventure. The team will make it easy for you to choose the proper train for your tour time. (Ample parking is available if arriving on your own)

Helicopter Flight Services will keep you at ease by taking you back to Linden train station where we bid you farewell back to Manhattan.
Your journey begins by flying directly over Newark International Airport towards Manhattan. En route to New York Harbor you will view the illuminated Statue of Liberty before viewing the skyscrapers of the Financial District, home of The New York Stock Exchange. Flying north along the Hudson River, guests will catch a glimpse of the Empire State Building, as well as Madison Square Garden, Hudson Yards, Chelsea, The West Village, SOHO and TRIBECA. 9/11 Memorial and One World Trade Center are also in view.

Be prepared to get some great pictures as you cross over Central Park, flying directly over New York City. From Central Park you can see the Rockefeller Center and the bright lights of Times Square! After passing over the Metropolitan Museum of Art the helicopter will turn around just north of Roosevelt Island returning along the same path, offering all passengers spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline. The flight is approximately 25-30 minutes in duration.
