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

The company will do its best to maximise the capacity of each helicopter therefore it is highly unlikely that you will get a helicopter to yourself. They also weigh everyone and then tell you where to sit to ensure an even... More
