I'm a lifelong New Yorker. I've gone to the top of every major skyscraper and flown in to LaGuardia & JFK. None of those experiences matches the view acheived taking the Helicopter Flight Services "The New Yorker" tour.
We booked in advance and were up in the air 20 minutes after arriving at the helipad to check-in. Our pilot called out all of the points of interest and the massive windows on the helicopter gave us an amazing bird's eye view of lower Manhattan, Governor's Island, Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, Chelsea Piers, the Intrepid and even Central Park.
I recommend this equally to tourists coming to NY for the first time and born & bred New Yorkers. Quintessential way to experience the NYC skyline!
