For this 20-minute helicopter tour of New York City at night, you can pick your departure time any time between 7pm and 10pm. Your helicopter flight takes off from Linden Municipal Airport in Linden New Jersey. If you’re already in New York and not New Jersey, take a 34-minute train ride from Penn Station to the Linden NJ Train Station. The round-trip train ticket costs about $17 (own expense). A shuttle is available to pick you up from the NJ train station, and take you to the airport.
Once you’re at the airport, board your helicopter. Your pilot takes off, and flies you right over Newark International Airport toward Manhattan. From the Statue of Liberty to Time Square, experience views of New York City lit up at night. Other areas you’ll pass include the Financial District, Brooklyn, Queens, Chelsea, the West Village, SOHO, and TRIBECA.
Famous sights you can catch a glimpse of while you ride include the Rockefeller Center, Columbus Circle, the Hudson River, the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, and the United Nations Headquarters.
After all the excitement, your helicopter lands down back at Linden Municipal Airport. You can take the shuttle to the train station for a train ride to NYC, or find other means of transport.
