As a solo traveler on this particular trip, it was the perfect way to experience multiple landmarks that I couldn’t physically travel to due to time constraints. The experience was amazing and a great way to conclude my time in NYC.

My 13 yr old daughter and I went to NYC and did the helicopter at night, the views were amazing and the pilot was so professional, friendly and informative! The staff to prepare you was so nice and easy to deal with! If coming in from NYC I would recommend spending the extra to take an Uber because the Linden train station was pretty rough at night.
