A helicopter ride over the world's greatest city is a must-do.  The iconic landmarks, buildings and monuments have become part of the public's consciousness and never more so since 9/11 and the best way to truly appreciate the scope, size, scale and geographical positioning is from the sky.

 There are many different companies offering such trips and there also different types of flights, including personal ones, ones around the whole of Manhattan, or all 5 boroughs, ones around the Statue of Liberty...you can almost tailor-make your own favourite trip to get what you want out of the experience.

Liberty Helicopters are probably the best-known company and offer many different of the best tours.  Zip Helicoptor Tours from 12th Avenue/West 30th also have some amazing flights as does Viator.
