Helicopter flying can be tricky at times.

? Ask the guys who flew the bomber into the side of the Empire State Building just after WWII

Could be mechanical...helicopters are finicky beasts. There's some pretty spectacular footage out there on Youtube of a news chopper spinning down out of control and crashing into a roof in Brooklyn a while back. The helicopter was totalled, but miraculously, the pilot and reporter both got out OK.

Do they still run helicopters back and forth as passenger carriers in NYC? There used to be shuttle helicopters going between the airports and helipads on the top of a couple of buildings in Manhattan, but I thought they might've stopped that a while back after another crash.

It’s been done.

In fact, even with modern instruments, pilots have crashed into bigger things, like mountains.

By accident, of course. Is this a trick question?

Mechanical failure? You started up higher and came crashing down?

If you are flying along and suddenly your engine stops, you crash. If there is a building under you, you crash into the building.
