I was extremely excited ahead of this trip having never been in a helicopter before and this certainly didn’t disappoint. The pilot Ben gave good commentary on the trip. It’s not cheap but was worth it.

The best helicopter service by far in New York! The staff is amazing, and we felt safe the entire trip. It’s my second time flying with HeliNY and I couldn’t be more pleased! Big thanks to Bernhard and his crew.

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
