When I trek through the canyons of New York City, I am continuously humbled by its size. Buildings tower above, touching the clouds, and if I go far enough east or west, I can perhaps catch a glimpse of the East River or Hudson Bay. Only then am I reminded I’m on an island just 13.4 miles long and 2.3 miles wide. When walking through the concrete jungle, it feels like one of the largest places on the planet.
However, the Complete New York, New York Helicopter Tour offered me a completely different perspective. Once we lifted off the ground, the puzzle pieces of New York’s five boroughs began to fit together.
