What to expect

Do you want to get to see all of New York City in a nutshell? Who could blame you! Sit back and relax in your comfortable helicopter seat while you see all of the sights of the Big Apple, including the Liberty Harbor if you chose to extend your route northbound to Upper Manhattan.
Your crew will fly you past midtown and all of Central Park up to Harlem and the Harlem River, Columbia University, Grant's Tomb, the Bronx, Yankee Stadium, and over the infamous George Washington Bridge.
You will view the mountainous Palisades Cliffs and make a turn south towards the most popular parts of eastern New Jersey like Hoboken, the birthplace of Frank Sinatra.
You'll also fly over to Lower Manhattan's Battery Park and world-renowned Wall Street and then to greet the Statue of Liberty eye-to-eye where the awe continues as you take in the aerial view from Ellis Island.
The Big City tour truly gives you a perspective into both exciting worlds and sights impossible to see from any other vantage point!
