How about a bird’s-eye view of Manhattan—literally? Fifteen- and 20-minute helicopter tours from lower Manhattan take in the Midtown skyscrapers, Central Park, the Statue of Liberty. If you opt for the longest tour, you’ll fly far enough uptown to take in the George Washington Bridge and Yankee Stadium. Flights leave every 15 minutes daily from 9am to 9pm, but note that at least a 24-hour advance reservation is required.
