I’m sure it comes as no surprise that one of my favorite things to do while traveling is take pictures. And with a city as beautiful and diverse as New York, how can you not?! I’ve been getting tons of requests for a list of picture spots in NYC so I compiled my favorite spots and listed them in order based off of location so you can make the most of your time while adventuring though the city.
Let me know if this was helpful and if you’d like picture lists for other destinations!

I feel like every street in NYC has it’s own personality, story and culture. My favorite thing to do is just walk around the city and go up and down the streets. They make for perfect photo backdrops!

Challenges: These places would make some cool photos, but might take a little creativity due to the amount of people and lighting, try them out and see what you can create!
  • Subway Station
  • Grand Central Station

You really can’t go wrong with anywhere in New York City because it’s such a photogenic place. I hope this inspires you to get out there and take some amazing photos! So much love,
