A New York Adventure - The Sky Above New York City

Flying above New York

Categories: Around NYC with Irene
New York is famous and loved for many things, it offers so much -- museums, monuments, shows, attractions, unique lifestyle, countless cultures and ... the Skyline!

There are many ways to enjoy the famous Manhattan Skyline, from the ground, from the water, and from the sky, for example flying over New York City to admire the main landmarks from this unique vantage point is an experience you can do during the day, at sunset, or at night aboard a helicopter (private or regular rides) -- the choice is yours!

But what I want to share with you today is a really fun adventure that takes place over New York City. I'm talking about a night flight (45 minutes long) on a helicopter with no doors! One of the most incredible experiences ever, it was certainly not the first time that I flew aboard a helicopter over Manhattan, I've accompanied visiting friends and relatives and many customers and each time I'm always as excited as the first time.

As always before recommending an activity or a tour, I have to test it myself, this is part of the "game" ... I meant job! ;-)
So here I am ready to climb aboard, despite my vertigo, aboard a helicopter with no doors to fly over the skies of New York City!

The views from above are always amazing, but even more so at nighttime when the city is a mix of twinkling lights. Better than trying to describe it with words, here is a short video I created to share with you my experience.

Do you want to see New York from above? In the video you will see:

  • Statue of Liberty
  • Empire State Building
  • Times Square
  • Brooklyn bridge
  • The ONE Tower World Trade Center
  • Central Park
  • Chrysler Building
  • and so much more!

Enjoy the ride!

Irene was a FANTASTIC tour guide! She was so knowledgeable about the area and was so patient with all our questions. We stopped to use the bathroom and we got coffee halfway through, she was so kind! It was a pleasure learning about Brooklyn from you!

I’m the biggest fan of Fall activities, but haven’t had a chance to do anything beyond Apple Picking in NJ. I decided to take a last minute 2 day trip with a friend in Hudson Valley, but didn’t know where to start [...] Thankfully I was able to use New York Welcome to do the hard work for us [...]

The SATC walking tour is fabulous! Our tour guide was amazing. Friendly, helpful, accommodating and so knowledgeable about the city. It was essentially 2 tours in 1. SATC and visits to historical places in the city. I give this tour 5 stars and definitely recommend. Grab your walking shoes and schedule one today!
