The helicopter flight cost $270 for 25 minutes. The people who sat on the left side of the craft got a fantastic view of lower Manhattan, the SoL, Mid-town and Yankee's Stadium. I sat on the right side of the craft, which treated me with a great view of New Jersey and Brooklyn. Also, the haze was a problem, and the windows of the craft are designed for sightseeing, not photography. Oh well.
However, I did get about 5 minutes of prime viewing, which included the Empire State, Chrysler and Central Park. The best view, by far, was from the top of Rockefeller Center.
Here are a few more photos from the helicopter trip.
