Instagramming NYC

Instagram just released some interesting stats, including that New York is the most Instagrammed city in the world (not shocking). But inside NYC, what are the most photographed spots on the social network? Most of the answers were not surprising... key sights like Central Park, Times Square, the best museums... though Madison Square Garden was a semi-surprising inclusion.

What are my favorite spots in the city to photograph (other than those on Instagram's list)? Well, of course, I love Bushwick in Brooklyn for its neighborhood-wide gallery of ever-changing street art. I also think Brooklyn Bridge Park & DUMBO have some amazing architecture and some of the best views of Manhattan. And, while less visited than its western counterpart, Midtown East has the most photographic icons of New York for my tastes... Grand Central Terminal, the Chrysler Building (their lobby is an art-deco masterpiece), the New York Public Library main branch, lobbies of the Ford Foundation and the Daily News building, and more.

Interested in photographing New York... not only the biggest sights, but the city's most photogenic secret spots? I'd love to help plan a custom photography walking tour! Don't hesitate to contact me... I'm only a click (bad pun!) away.
