    Thoroughly enjoyed our trip although it didn't last as long as we had expected. Saw Ellis and Liberty islands, Brooklyn bridge and one world trade centre and then back to Kearny. Helipad is a bit out of the way in New Jersey.

    Since arriving home many friends have commented that they would do this but it seems like it would be expensive.
