I've never taken a helicopter ride...but maybe someday!! This is a photo of the the Downtown Manhattan Heliport, a landing platform in the East River. They operate charter service to local airports from the Heliport, as well as sightseeing tours and VIP pickups. According to Wikipedia, much of the heliport's traffic is generated by Wall Street and the lower Manhattan financial district; top business executives and time-sensitive document deliveries often use the heliport as well. It must be nice to take off whenever you like!
