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.About the Supplier: Helicopter Flight Services provide affordable helicopter tours in NY to tourists and have a fleet of the most modern and quietest Bell and Airbus helicopters.
