New York is packed full of photo worthy locations that will have you uploading them to Instagram just as quick as you can take them. On your own, a romantic getaway with your partner or a livelier trip with friends, we give you our favourites to help you capture New York’s vibrant energy in our list of the best places for photos in New York.
The Brooklyn Bridge is a must-see, an icon of New York City instantly recognisable. With its views over Lower Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty the bridge is particularly beautiful at sunset. Watch it come alive with electric wonder as the lights are switched on at night.
At the south side of the bridge is Down Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass neighbourhood (DUMBO), which offers amazing views of both the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges.
The Meatpacking district has taken on many personas over the years and today is full of atmosphere with many restaurants and great nightlife. Our pick of things to see in the district include the High Line Park, a public park built on a historic freight rail line which has helped transform the district into the up market area it is today.
This district also offers amazing street art photo opportunities and has attracted the likes of Banksy during his Better Out Than In New York residency in 2013.
Not surprisingly, Times Square makes it onto our list of the best places for photos in New York because, day or night, Times Square offers spectacular scenes. Whether it be the entertaining artists, the party atmosphere or the stunning glow of the famous, brightly lit advertising.
