I booked a helicopter ride for my boyfriend and I, and we were amazed by how beautiful the city was from the sky! Helicopter Flight Services was seamless to book and board, and the helicopter ride was smooth and relaxing. If you are new to NYC or have lived in NYC for years -- I highly recommend this ride. We started at the bottom of the East River, made our way around the Statue of Liberty, and went all the way up to the George Washington Bridge. To say it was gorgeous was an understatement.
