Helicopter ban?

Man - first the carriages, now the helicopters? What's next - the octopus bikes? Wait a minute - come to think of it, I haven't see those octopus bikes out in a while.

I don't have that much of an opinion on the helicopter tours - all I know is that they're too expensive for me to take. I think there's a little bit of a backlash to the tourism industry after the last years of it growing so much and starting to affect the everyday lives of New Yorkers more and more. Little things and low-hanging fruit are first - banning talking on tour buses on Bleecker street, going after the Horse Drawn Carriages, and now the Helicopters. We'll see if this trend continues.
