Being one of the most photographed cities in the world, New York City is full of beautiful spots to photograph. When planning a shoot, you might need some ideas of where to start shooting. Many photographers suggest simply taking a walk and notice what catches your eye, but the majority of the time we don’t have time to prance around and search. That’s why we have created a list of 15 undeniably photographic spots across New York City for shots you can’t get anywhere else.
Typical I know. But there’s a reason it’s so acclaimed. Central park is 840 acres of pure beauty so of course it had to make the list.
Old Pier 1
Described as “a photographer’s dream,” try and catch the pier just as the sun is setting.
Keep walking along the bridge until you find the perfect overlook onto Chinatown that makes for some brilliant shots.
Tudor City Overpass
A perfect shot of the Chrysler building.
Always a colorful little corner of Little Italy.
Talk about a view. Get drunk at this rooftop bar while you photograph the city skyline.
