The fascinating "New Yorker Tour” lasts between 12 and 15 minutes.
Your flight takes off from Downtown Manhattan Heliport, Pier 6, East River New York, NY 10004. It is a short 5-minute walk from the South Ferry subway station (last stop Downtown on Line 1). You can easily get there using Google Maps; simply search for "Downtown Manhattan Heliport."
Make sure to arrive at the heliport with plenty of time to spare so as not to miss your flight.
Leaving from Times Square it takes about 30 minutes to reach the heliport by subway or taxi and even longer after 4pm, due to the heavy late-afternoon traffic.
Good to know: reservations are required.
If you arrive at the heliport without a reservation, you may have to wait until later in the day for an available flight. Due to limited availability, we recommend that you book at least 2 weeks in advance. If you’re visiting the city in and around Christmas, New Years or Easter, we highly recommend that you book at least 3 to 4 weeks in advance due to the high demand.
