A bit of forgotten aviation history

New York Airways ran helicopter commuter flights here 1965-1968, and again briefly in 1977. A landing accident here on May 16, 1977 killed four passengers and a pedestrian on the street below, ending the use of skyscraper helipads in New York City, though they remain in use in other cities elsewhere, primarily for emergency use.
