Helicopter Journey over Manhattan, New York, USA
Four hundred years ago there was the loudest and the most beneficent real estate transaction in the human history: the Indians sold Manhattan to the Europeans for 24 dollars. Now the island has changed beyond recognition and for this amount of money one can buy except perhaps a ticket to visit the skyscraper of Empire State Building.
Nowadays Manhattan is one of the most populous islands of the planet. Only its land price is about 40 billion dollars and the whole island's price including its real estate is more than 3 trillion dollars. By the way, the quantity of the richest inhabitants here is also record-breaking. They joke in New York, that only very profuse in expenditure person can drive on Manhattan, because the search of a parking place can take the same time as a driving. It's better to walk along Manhattan and not only due to high traffic density.
Except for the many museums, there are almost each building is an attractive monument. Ancient houses are to blend in with the best examples of modern architecture. There is a lot of New York's most famous sightseeing located, including mentioned below popular Empire State Building, Central Park and Times Square. And racy China Town as well as colorful Broadway - all these are situated on this island.
And another way to know Manhattan better is to admire it from the bird-eye flight. We created all our New York panoramas in september of 2007.
