I don't think there are any reasonably priced helicopter tours. While it is a great experience seeing NYC from the air, the experience does come at a high price. A few years ago my husband and I paid about $350 for both of us.

Hi - I don't know if this is your first trip or not - but we went for the first time in October. Initially we thought we would do a helicopter trip - 2 adults and 2 teenagers.

However after experiencing Top of the Rock (by day) and Empire State (by night) we decided to spend our money on something else. Both were incredible and we could linger over the views.

I'm not sure but I don't think the helicopters actually fly over the buildings any more - I think they go over the river.

They go over the river and 3 people have died from a recent crash. Listen to Groov if you want to spend time in high places.
