The Best Landmarks in New York City to See from the Air

Mar 12, 2019 | Liberty, The Helicopter Company News & Events

New York has so many amazing landmarks that it is virtually impossible to see them all in the course of a single day, or even a full weekend. However, it is absolutely possible to hit all of the spots on your bucket list by taking a NY helicopter tour that allows you to get a different perspective of what makes this city one of the most amazing places to visit. As you prepare your trip itinerary, be sure to include some of these landmarks that you can easily see from the air.

Gaze in Wonder at the Liberty and Ellis Islands

The Statue of Liberty is one of the most important symbols of American freedom, and seeing it from the air allows you to get a birds-eye view of her majestic beauty. As you fly over Liberty Island, you will also be in close enough proximity to get a glimpse of Ellis Island. Soaring over the place where so many immigrants first made their way into the United States, gives you an understanding of the tremendous history that exists within New York City’s most famous landmarks.

Seeing the Major Bridges From the Air

From the Brooklyn Bridge to the Verrazzano Bridge, New York City has some of the most interesting and beautiful bridges you will ever see. For instance, the Brooklyn bridge was the first steel wire suspension bridge to be built in the world. While it is no longer the longest bridge in the world, you will still find that from above you can see the true beauty of one of the world’s greatest marvels.

Enjoy a Sky High View of the Tallest Skyscrapers

The New York City skyline wouldn’t be what it is today without the many amazing skyscrapers that line the streets. When you want to see the tallest buildings in New York, the best place to head is the sky. This allows you to see the buildings rising high above the smaller landmarks that the city has to offer. From the helicopter, everything looks small in comparison to the startling high skyscrapers that are amazing works of architecture.

Glide Over Your Favorite Stadiums

The Yankee and MetLife stadiums are additional landmarks that our customers request to fly over on their private helicopter ride. While you can see these landmarks on foot, flying over them is a lot more fun because you can even peek down inside. In fact, you never know who you might see playing if you happen to fly over at just the right time.

Our Manhattan helicopter tours let you see more landmarks in 15 to 30 minutes than you could ever do on foot or by car. Our services give you the freedom to choose a custom flight so that you never miss a thing. When you want a tour of New York City that involves no crowds and breathtaking views, a helicopter tour is an absolute must to include on your travel itinerary.
