A list of the most Instagrammable photos in the city! So many places, amazing locations and world famous monuments, interesting buildings, bridges, neighborhoods and so many areas of interest, all ready to be discovered! Many of New York City’s neighborhoods and landmarks are known to the more than 62 million visitors it receives each year. Several sources have ranked it as the most photographed city in the world. The names of the city’s bridges, skyscrapers and parks are known worldwide. Regardless, New York is the most Instagram-friendly city on the planet.
Not to be confused with the Manhattan Bridge, at the intersection of Washington Street and Water Street is one of the most photogenic places in New York City. DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass), a neighborhood known for its cobblestone streets, got its nickname from its location under the Manhattan Bridge. Looking down on the bridge from the intersection, you can easily see the Empire State Building under its arches. The poster of the movie “Once Upon a Time in America”
Nicknamed the “Crossroads of the World”, is an intersection in the heart of Manhattan leading to Broadway, and is considered one of the busiest pedestrian intersections in the world, as well as a major center of the entertainment industry.
Sure, you can go to the top of the Empire State Building to get a panoramic photo of Manhattan, but your photo will be missing one key thing: the Empire State Building itself.
The Top of the Rock offers a much better view, as you’ll have a great view of Central Park in one direction and Lower Manhattan (including the Empire State Building) in the other.
The views of the Hudson River and the rooftop bar are well worth a visit. It’s built next to the High Line, an old abandoned railroad that has been transformed into a must-see park.
Beautiful in any season, Central Park is a great choice of place to take pictures. Plus, if you’re looking for a recommendation of the best place in the park to do it, we suggest doing it near the lake.
Built in 1902, this charming building is located between 5th Avenue and Broadway. The neighborhood has become very popular. The pedestrian walkways in front of the building and the nearby Madison Square Park are ideal backdrops for photos.
You can’t leave NYC without taking a picture of the Statue of Liberty, can you? A great option for incredible photos is to take the boat ride, especially in the late afternoon, to take advantage of the natural lighting.
