Those who work in Manhattan, or any large city for that matter, can attest first hand to how difficult the commute can be. While many have apartments or houses in the city, the privileged also may wish to spend a weekend at their vacation house in Eastern Long Island. Montauk and the Hamptons provide a relaxing escape from the intensity that comes from working in Manhattan.
However while Montauk is only a little over 100 miles from the city that never sleeps, the high volume of cars and traffic can make the trip take hours. Simply getting out of Manhattan and into the suburbs can take a few hours, especially on a Friday afternoon. Many times, people only have a small window for a weekend getaway, so maximizing the time is always a priority. The last thing you want to do is spend all of Friday evening driving, all day Saturday recovering, and then all day Sunday driving back.
To avoid this, many of our clients choose to charter a helicopter. Door to door the trip can take as little as 45 minutes. Imagine jumping in a helicopter at 5:15 and arriving at your vacation house at 6. Watch the bumper to bumper traffic from high above with your feet up.
Taking time to relax and recharge is crucial to putting in a good week. Making sure that you squeeze every ounce of relaxation out of your time away from the office will ensure that you come back fresh on Monday.
