In 30 minutes or less you can capture 30 or more of NYC’s most breathtaking sights from the top down; all without having to walk, sit on a train, push through crowds, wait in lines, or hail cabs. Your pilot will get you close enough to snap some wonderful shots to remember your experience for a lifetime. www.manhattanhelicopters.com
