New York NY: Gotham Air Will Get You There!


When you drive your car or ride a taxi to and from busy JFK and Newark Airports, does the word forever apply? To go those 20 miles by road and tunnel, an hour in jammed, honking travel can seem like eternity.

Now, a Gotham Air chopper, partnered with Helicopter Flight Services, can make the trip in about six minutes. The experience also leaves you fresh to face the flight or day in New York.

As an introduction, the first flight is $99. Thereafter, fees range from $199 to $219, depending on the time of day. The service operates seven days a week, and in bad weather,  offer door to door car service. Taxi fare between airport and city, when tolls and tips are figured in, is about $60.

Seniors Back in Classroom: Cooking School Session in Italy PDF Print E-mail

If you believe you’re never too old to learn something new, we have a great education/vacation idea for you. And you can do it this springtime in sunny Italy.
