The New Yorker Helicopter Tour

DETAILS

  • 2 hours
  • Flightseeing Tour

Take an exhilarating helicopter ride over New York City, admiring landmarks such as the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, Central Park and so many other icons.


After departing from the pier, you will soon arrive at the heliport and board a helicopter for an unforgettable ride over the Big Apple. As the helicopter’s blades begin to whirl, the excitement will build - a feeling that will only increase with take off.


Before long, you will be soaring above the city enjoying a bird’s-eye view of New York’s most recognizable landmarks. They include architectural icons such as the Art Deco-style Chrysler Building and beautiful natural attractions such as Central Park, which looks entirely different from the air than it does at ground level.


You will also be treated to a unique perspective of Ellis Island and the nearby Statue of Liberty in the Hudson River. Dedicated in 1886, the copper statue of Liberty Enlightening the World was often the first sight of America for so many immigrants over the years.


Just up the East River, you will fly by the Brooklyn Bridge, which was the world’s longest suspension bridge when it opened in 1883. Other sights that you may see during the flight include South Street Seaport, Greenwich Village and the World Financial Center.


After landing at the heliport, you will transfer back to the pier.
