FlyNYON New York City Experience

Don’t worry, I’m well aware of the fact that I have been spamming my blog-feed with numerous helicopter posts. However, I felt obligated to post shots from my amazing experience in New York City last summer. I’ll make this one short, I promise. Yet again, I arrived at LaGuardia an hour and a half before my take off. At the time, I thought my Uber could not be driving any slower. I felt like I was watching the paint dry as I watched the minutes tick by, drawing even closer to the appointment. Nonetheless, the last leg of the drive (once entering New-Jersey), was smooth-sailing. The doors had to be kept on due to an open-door helicopter tragedy that had happened in New York that summer. While that may be the case, this was still an incredible experience.

Exploring Times Square

On my last day in NY, I deeply wanted to explore the city. That morning, I woke up extremely early (about 7 AM) and got ready to head downtown. I was staying at an Airbnb in Brooklyn and the commute to Manhattan was about an hour. I took the C-Train to Manhattan from 168th Street. Once arriving, I was pumped that I had woken up so early. There was not a cloud in the sky and the temperature was a solid 85°. I was ready to begin exploring the skyscrapers.

After about 3 hours of searching for a solid candidate to climb, I found my opportunity. At 136 W 42nd St lies the Hilton Garden Inn Times Square Central. This building had access to its roof that’s 52 stories up. As always, this was a great way to end my trip to New York City. I definitely plan on traveling there again. There are months of exploring left for me in that city!
