Take a spin above the dramatic New York skyline! This helicopter tour, with its majestic views of iconic sights such as the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and the World Financial Center, is a MUST for any visitor to NYC!

After watching a safety video and receiving a briefing from the crew you will rise into the air over The Big Apple and enjoy an up-close view of the Statue of Liberty. As you hover over Ellis Island, you’ll remember the millions of immigrants whose first views of the U.S.A were at that very spot. 

You’ll take in the majestic Brooklyn Bridge, over 120 years old and one of the oldest suspension bridges in the U.S.A. As you make your way up the Hudson River, you’ll enjoy the sights of the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building, those iconic Art Deco structures that symbolize the New York City skyline. You’ll be impressed by the World Financial Center, home to companies such as American Express and Merrill Lynch. 

Along the New Jersey Coast, you’ll have remarkable views of the Goldman Sachs Tower, the tallest building in New Jersey, as well as the Colgate Clock and Liberty State Park, and finally Ground Zero, the site of the World Trade Center.
