New York Helicopter Tour: Manhattan, Brooklyn and Staten Island
From US$ 389.00
Discover New York City’s must-see sites from above on this helicopter tour of Manhattan, Brooklyn and beyond. See dazzling skyscrapers and elegant bridges, the towering Palisades and sprawling Central Park, Yankee Stadium and Grant’s Tomb, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Multiple departures are available to suit your schedule and all fees and surcharges are included.
What to Expect
Embark on your tour at the Downtown Manhattan Heliport, near the southern tip of New York City’s most striking borough. Begin with a jaunt around its soaring skyscrapers—the Freedom Tower, Rockefeller Center, the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, and One World Trade Center. Cruise over the harbor and take in views of France’s famous gift to the United States, the Statue of Liberty, the tiny island where your great grand grandparents may have entered America, and the world’s first steel suspension bridge, the Brooklyn Bridge.
Extend your tour and head north up the Hudson River, checking out America’s first public park (Central Park), one of the country’s oldest universities (Columbia) and the jarringly beautiful Palisades, the sheer cliffs rising just west of Manhattan. The tour also includes the Verrazano Bridge, Grant’s Tomb, Yankee Stadium, George Washington Bridge, Chelsea Piers and more.
