    What to Expect
    Start this exciting aerial tour of New York City by hopping in the helicopter and ascending into the sky above the Big Apple. Fly down the Hudson River passing One World Trade Center, the historic Woolworth Building, and the many towers of the Financial District. Then hover over the Statue of Liberty, getting an incredible view from above before flying near the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge that links Staten Island and Brooklyn.

    Head back up the Hudson, passing along the way the New York Times building, the Empire State Building, Times Square, the Intrepid aircraft carrier, and Central Park. Fly further uptown to see the gigantic St. John the Divine Cathedral, Columbia University, the famed Dakota apartment building, and the George Washington Bridge.

    Great flight - a whole new perspective on Manhattan. Not cheap but well worth the money. We were lucky and got the two front seats - all based on weight distribution so don't think you have any choice.

    We were still at home when we booked our tour and it was easy and seamless. The greeting was friendly and the pre-boarding instructions is our anxiety. With our adrenaline heightened we took off into the air and saw the sights of New York from a totally different perspective.
