He posted a brilliant video of his tour over NYC flown by Andrew Woods of Zip Aviation. I showed it to my wife (who is a terrible air passenger!) but to my surprise... More

We never knew 20minutes could pass so quickly. A stunning view of the city, the Statue of Liberty and the surrounding areas. Smooth, silk, professional, friendly - too many adjectives, but all-in-all, a great once-in-a-lifetime experience. Such an elegant way to see the city and so different from either ground-level or from an observation deck. It's such a rush!

Staying in Financial District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
