    There used to be helicopter service between the airports and helipads on top of buildings in Manhattan. That all ended in 1977 when a chopper crashed on the roof of the pan am building. https://gothamist.com/news/in-1977-five-were-killed-in-helicopter-accident-atop-midtowns-pan-am-building

    That said, helicopters are pretty safe. But noisy as all hell yes.

    Knew it was only a matter of time before the noise became annoying. As for the crash a helicopter (not Uber) did crash in NY over the summer. Yes it was a mess. Yes someone was killed. I'll search for article a little later and atrach it to the post.

    oh man, that sucks. I wonder if this will force home prices in cities down. Not only because of the noise but because of the new ease of transport options from outside of the city in.
