I am horrified of heights, but when I had the opportunity to get into a 5 seater helicopter without doors to fly 25,000 ft above Manhattan I could't turn it down. I opted for the "safest " seat on the helicopter- up front right next to the captain. The scariest part of all of it was probably take off, but once we were up it was actually a smooth ride. The pilot flew us around downtown Manhattan so we could see the freedom tower, FIDI, Tribeca, the Statue of Liberty etc. We had the most incredible aeriel views of the city it was truly breathtaking. The entire trip was only 30 minutes, which is all you really need. This was one of the most memorable things I have been lucky enough to do and 10/10 would do again. Plus you get some incredible pics doing this.
