In a assertion, Maloney recalled alternative accidents within the town - in conjunction with a tour flight that crashed into the East River final March, killing five passengers - and stated the town would possibly well now now not "depend on unswerving fortune to provide protection to folks on the bottom".
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said that there is "no indication" that terrorism was involved.
An air safety investigator said Tuesday that an earlier passenger in the helicopter said nothing seemed out of the ordinary during the previous flight. He was an experienced pilot who had taken off from an East River heliport in Manhattan en route to Linden Airport, about 20 miles (32 km) southwest in New Jersey, according to Paul Dudley, the airport's director.
That trip would have taken the helicopter south, over the city's harbor and past the Statue of Liberty.

Once the pilot was in the air, he radioed back to the heliport and said he needed to return. Eric Weiss, a spokesman for the National Transportation Safety Board, said the agency was gathering information to determine whether it would investigate the crash.
