Downtown Manhattan Heliport

The Downtown Manhattan Heliport also known as the Downtown Manhattan/Wall St. Heliport, is a helicopter landing platform at Pier 6 in the East River in Manhattan, New York. It is a public heliport operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey with charter service to Newark Liberty International Airport, Teterboro Airport, Morristown Municipal Airport, and other New York-area airports. Public sightseeing and VIP flights are also common. Downtown Manhattan Heliport opened on December 8, 1960, supplementing the existing heliport at West 30th Street which opened in 1956. The Downtown Manhattan Heliport was the first heliport in the United States certified for scheduled passenger service. During the 1960s and 1970s, New York Airways provided scheduled service from the heliport to the city's major airports. Scheduled passenger service was discontinued with PanAm's bankruptcy in the mid-1980s. In 2006, US Helicopter resumed scheduled passenger service with hourly flights to John F. Kennedy International Airport. 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. The heliport is also the normal landing spot for the President of the United States on visits to New York. Michael Bloomberg, now mayor of New York, frequently used the heliport to fly btw Bloomberg L.P. headquarters and Johns Hopkins University when he was chairman of both institutions.
