where bouts are you?
do you often see helicopters in your area?
For months, residents in Jersey City Heights, Journal Square, and Greenville have been complaining about helicopters from a Kearny-based heliport that fly just above rooftops and trees in these communities. Noise from these aircraft has been a concern, as has the fear that in the event of an accident people in these residential areas could be seriously injured.
Sitler and other residents said they have seen helicopters flying as early as 6 a.m. and as late as 11:30 p.m. and even after midnight.
She said the problem began after the South Kearny-based HHI Heliport was approved and opened for business in 2011. “The heliport in South Kearny obtained permission earlier in the week from Newark Liberty International Airport to fly at the maximum height of 1,000 feet, presumably in an effort to reduce noise to the communities over which they fly,” said Lopez.

Any number of reasons.
It could be a police helicoptor stationed there waiting for whoever they are chasing to be spotted, on standby if you will.
Could be a construction helicopter waiting for the crews to finish what they are doing before hauling something away.
Could be a lifeflight helicopter waiting for emergency crews on the ground to stabilize someone before transport.
Could be some sort of coordination training and its waiting for its role to come up in the excersize.
Could be a new pilot getting a license and they are performing a stationary test for 30 minutes.
Could be any endless number of things. One thing I'm pretty sure of though, it wasn't spying on you.
