1. Central Park, Bow Bridge
The Bow Bridge in Central Park is the second oldest bridge in the U.S. and is a romantic setting for photographers. It is located mid park around 74th St, just west of Bethesda Terrace.
2. Battery Park
The southern shoreline of Manhattan, better known as Battery Park, is a marvelous setting to capture downtown Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty, as well as Jersey City. There is a walking path from the southern tip of Manhattan all the way to Chelsea Piers and is a great place to spend the afternoon taking photos.
3. Central Park-Bethesda Terrace
Bethesda Terrace in Central Park is one of the most iconic places to take photographs. It is located in the middle of the park around 74th Street and is near The Boathouse.
4. Financial District
Since 9/11, the Financial District has been under much construction. The reconstruction of this area is almost complete, and is such an iconic part of the city to capture photographs. Check out Fulton Street, where you can capture great photographs of the World Trade Center (like the one above).
5. Times Square
You can't go to New York City without checking out Times Square. It is definitely a bustling part of the city, but a great place to photograph the lights as well as the people! The R Lounge in the Renaissance Hotel has a great birds eye view of Times Square and is a great place to grab a drink as well!
6. Grand Central Station
Another iconic place in New York City is Grand Central Station, which is located at 42nd Street and Park Avenue. The main hall, as photographed above, is one of the most photographed spots in NYC.
7. Brooklyn Bridge
No trip to New York City is complete without taking a stroll across the Brooklyn Bridge. The walkway on the bridge can be accessed outside the Brooklyn Bridge subway stop. This is a great place to photograph downtown Manhattan, especially at night!
