This helicopter tour offers a great aerial view of New York City. The helicopter tour lasts for 15 minutes and will go over all the main attractions including the Statue of Liberty, the Chrysler Building , Central Park, and other great attractions. While in the air the pilot will provide information about each of the buildings.
When on the tour can expect many highlights. You will get to see the Statue of Liberty as well as Ellis Island from in the air. This makes for a spectacular view. On this tour you will get to see the George Washington Bridges as well as Central Park. There are several different flights that run throughout the day so if you miss the first flight there are many others you can catch.
The helicopter tour will begin at the Battery Park area. This is located downtown and there is plenty of room for the helicopter to take off. This tour will allow you to check out the lower Manhattan area and you will even get to see the World Trade Center and the Woolworth Building. My favorite part of the tour was the aerial view of the Statue of Liberty.
The tour will then continue on and will show a view of the island of Manhattan. I enjoyed seeing the Brooklyn Bridge and was surprised at how big it actually looked from the air. The New York Times building is also a place to see. The Art Deco building will allow you to see some interesting and colorful sights against the skyline. I enjoyed seeing the vast greenery of Central Park. After viewing the park the tour will move on to the lower part of Manhattan and prepare to land.
This tour is one of the best ways to see Manhattan. When I was on this tour I got to see all the major landmarks and had the best view of them all. The staff was very friendly and helpful as well. The pilot had a great deal of knowledge about the city and provided many interesting facts. I had a great trip and got to see everything that I wanted to see in New York City. This helicopter tour was a fantastic experience. I would recommend this tour for everyone that loves New York City. This is nothing like seeing the view of Manhattan from high in the air.
