There were 12 - 15 tourist choppers on rotation today and the season is not even in full swing yet. One was landing or taking off every 10 - 20 seconds. This went on from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM without stop. It was impossible to enjoy the beautiful weather and the esplanade and Hudson River Park because of the constant din! Check out our video here.
Stop the Chop NYNJ is a local grassroots coalition of NY and NJ residents seeking to educate the public about the adverse effects of helicopters sightseeing tours on the environment and on the health and welfare of the two million people living underneath their Hudson River flight path.
