NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Residents in upper Manhattan are fed up with low-flying sightseeing helicopters that constantly pass by their apartments, rattling windows and nerves.
“You almost think like you’re in a war zone,” said Hyka Bachmann who lives at West 157th Street and Riverside Drive. “It’s unbelievable because sometimes they come right after the other.”
Bachmann said the helicopters fly so close to the building her 11th floor neighbor could see the eyes of the pilot or whether he’s sporting a beard.
“There’s actually eye contact with the pilot, that’s a little much,” Bachmann said.
