The 13 Most Instagrammable Photo Spots in NYC
The DUMBO Waterfront in Brooklyn shows incredible views of downtown Manhattan (and it's accessible by ferry, another great way to get photos!)
The Flatiron Building is a classic photo-op when you visit NYC and you can shoot from tons of interesting angles. Bonus points if you work in a cab!
The 28th Street Subway stop of the 6 train features a beautiful mosaic pattern created by Miotto Mosaic Art Studio based on a Nancy Blum drawing.
Made famous by Gossip Girl, the view of Manhattan Bridge from Water Street in DUMBO is perfectly framed by loft buildings and a cobblestone street.
The Highline is perfect mix of nature and cityscape and it's especially magical to take photos at during golden hour (1 hour before sunset).
La Esquina (aka "The Corner”) in SoHo is a quirky storefront with a neon sign and colorful bottles lining the takeout window.
The Gapstow Bridge in Central Park is one of my favorite places to capture photos because you get to see the city poking out from behind the trees.
The Village East Cinema on the corner of 11th St & 2nd Ave has tons of charm. Wear bright colors to pop against the black & white sign.
Greene Street in Soho will give you the quintessential background for street style photos with its white columned doorways and cobblestone streets.
If you're willing to make the journey to the edge of Brooklyn by subway, getting a shot in front of Coney Island's Wonder Wheel will never disappoint.
South Williamsburg's outdoor attraction Domino Park has a vibrant waterfront area including this taqueria, with beautiful views of the skyline.
Jane's Carousel in DUMBO is such a unique spot for photos. Try to show up early or around sunset to avoid too much background noise in the photo.
Gantry State Park in Long Island City is another great place to get photos, and you can even plan a second shoot in front of the Pepsi Cola Sign.
