Looking for the best photo spots in New York City?

By March 11, 2016 Travel

So I’m now in New York, for the third time… Its a city that I had believed to be the most over photographed spot in the world. Finding new quirky locations, angles, and lack of people is tough and without a tripod, or additional lens, it was going to be difficult to find any creative shots. Here’s my top ten spots in New York for taking photographs;

 Top Photo Spots in New York City

1/ Brooklyn Bridge (sunset is best)

2/ Times Square (any time around 6AM in twilight allows for only locals, activity and the shinning lights)

3/ The view from Top Of The Rock (Empire State is better to look at than look from)

6/ Midtown

Midtown is home to some of the city’s most iconic buildings, including the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, and the headquarters of the United Nations, and it contains world-renowned commercial zones such as Rockefeller Center, Broadway, and Times Square.

8/ Little Italy / China

Little Italy is a general name for an ethnic enclave populated primarily by Italians or people of Italian ancestry, usually in an urban neighborhood. The concept of “Little Italy” holds many different aspects of the Italian culture.
