NEW YORK FROM ABOVE
The flight starts at the Downtown Manhattan Heliport, located just a few minutes east from Battery Park and the Wall Street. From there, the helicopter will take off and soar above the Hudson River where you will get a spectacular view on the famous 305 feet tall Statue of Liberty at the southern tip of Manhattan. Next to the Statue of Liberty you will also discover Governors Island, which used to be the base of the U.S. military, and Ellis Island, which was the immigrants gateway until the early 20th century.
The flight continues towards the southwestern area of Manhattan, where you get a full picture of the Financial District. You will be surprised by how calm this busy neighborhood looks from above. The One World Trade Center follows you during the whole Helicopter Tour in NYC, because with a height of 1,776 feet, you just can't overlook it. But also its little height wise siblings, the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building won’t be missed out. Prepare yourself for fantastic views as you are flying towards north Manhattan. Not only the Woolworth Building, which was one of the first skyscrapers in New York, but also the MetLife Building and a view on the USS Intrepid from the Helicopter is waiting for you.
That's still not all! During this helicopter tour you will also get a glimpse of the George Washington Bridge, which is connecting Manhattan and New Jersey since 1931, and the well-known Central Park, before returning to the Downtown Manhattan Heliport.
