Visiting New York City for a short period of time can be quite overwhelming with all the amazing sights to see and places to eat. This is where FlyNyon comes in handy. FlyNyon is a helicopter flight service with locations situated in NYC, Miami, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Since this was my first official visit to the beloved city, I thought to myself, I have to do it right and why not do it from a different perspective! 1:00 P.M came and it was time to head to the luxurious East Blade Lounge with its convenient location in Manhattan which happens to be one of the two Helicopter pads located in New York for this company.

After a short safety video and a brief discussion on who will be sitting on the floor of the helicopter with their feet hanging outside, it was time to get harnessed-up and board the helicopter.

Group shot! The Harnesses were to keep us attached to the helicopter and to keep our cameras/phones attached to us!

Now lets get to the juicy part of this tour! We slowly ascended and headed North towards the Central Park area.

From the air, NYC seemed so small yet so big.

People suddenly became ants inhabiting their nests known as New York City. I was so blown away with how much more magical this amazing city became.

As an architecture enthusiast, seeing the beautifully designed high-rises from ground-level was a blessing in itself. Each building carried its own unique story, from who lived there to who worked there. Seeing them from above elevated my experience to a whole new level. Also, guess who got the adventure seat? Shoes – Public Desire.

 

One thing that I am so thankful for, was the opportunity to get so close to attractions such as The Empire State Building and the World Trade Center! Although I was not actually going to try, it felt like I could’ve just reached out and touch the buildings!

Finally, we got the chance to capture the money shot of the Financial District, get it? Haha.

After seeing the financial district, it was time to head back to base. Although I was still so shocked and amazed that I got to see the city from the sky, I was also depressed that it was over! I highly recommend FlyNyon to anyone who is interested in helicopter tours over NYC! Not only are they extremely professional, they also cater to any requests you may have and make the experience even more enjoyable.
