An aerial view is the ideal way to discover and photograph the Big Apple while skipping the crowds and entrance fees. During this helicopter ride over Manhattan, see many of New York’s world-famous sights up close, such as the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, Madison Square Garden, and more. Your pilot provides commentary as you soar in a modern, state-of-the-art aircraft. Choose from multiple tour times to fit your schedule.
What to Expect
Your helicopter flight begins at Downtown Manhattan Heliport. Upon paying the heliport’s security fee (separate expense), board the comfortable helicopter and take to the skies.
The first notable sight is Governor’s Island, off Manhattan’s southern tip. Continue across the water for an up-close encounter with the Statue of Liberty. Next, pass One World Trade Center and Ground Zero before heading up the Hudson River.
See Madison Square Garden and two of the city’s most famous skyscrapers: the Empire State Building and Chrysler Building.
The tour continues northwards, from the neon lights of Times Square to verdant Central Park. Catch sight of the USS Intrepid (a World War II–era warship) and Ellis Island.
From the helicopter, enjoy a top-down vantage point and live commentary, all without battling crowds or paying for separate admission at each site.
The flight ends when you touch down at the Downtown Manhattan Heliport.

Loved to see New York from the sky. It was a windy day for our flight which made it pretty scary at times but this just added to the excitement.
