Full description
Manhattan brings to mind grand skyscrapers, taxi cabs, and a world-class attitude all of its own. See all this and more as an expert pilot flies you over NYC by helicopter.

After take off, swing down over lower Manhattan to see the skyline and streets below. Swoop over Battery Park for the chance to glance at Wall Street and its labyrinth of streets. Then sail over to Governor's Island, an island once reserved only for the dignitaries of the city that today hosts summer concerts and exceptional public art.

Then, in the distance, see Lady Liberty shining brightly. Cruise right up to her eye for an entirely new perspective of the Statue of Liberty!

Enjoy all this before heading up the Hudson past the piers of Chelsea, the lights of Broadway, and the playground of Central Park.

On your way back to the pier, head around the Empire State Building, Brooklyn Bridge, and finally fly over Ground Zero where you can have a look at the exceptional work they're doing at the sight.

Flight Path: Your 15-minute flight departs the Downtown Heliport and flies past Governor’s Island, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island before continuing up the Hudson River. You will continue past Madison Square Garden and the Intrepid Air and Space Museum. At Central Park your flight turns around for the return to the heliport.
