Flying
Every Person in New York


Hang Gliding
Mountain Wings has been teaching hang gliding since 1980, about 75 miles north of the city.




Skydiving
At Long Island Skydiving in East Moriches, they say they can have first-timers dive-ready in as little as an hour for a tandem freefall.




Frequent Flyers
What do you get for a $450 annual fee? The Chase Sapphire Reserve card gives you $300 in annual statement credit for travel, good value when you book travel through them with points, 3x points on travel and dining, and reimbursement for Global Entry or TSA Pre Check.




Pogo
It is not your father's pogo stick. The Flybar Extreme Pogo 1000 turns the great bounce into an extreme sport—you can get a nearly six-foot bounce. $319.99




Balloon Ride
The Hudson Valley always looks good to us at ground level, but you can get a whole new perspective of the region with an Above the Clouds flight, taking off from Middletown, NY, about an hour from the city.




Trapeze School
It may take a few tries to be flying through the air with the greatest of ease, but the Trapeze School New York at Pier 40 and South Williamsburg can make it happen.






Jason Polan started Every Person in New York in March of 2008. He plans on working on the project until it is finished. Look for more at Jason's site and his book Every Person in New York.
