I spent the past weekend in New York City, a place I’ve oddly spent little time in. With so much to see my good friend Phil Martin (@phil.martin) and I (@someguy) hit up some of the most iconic photo spots in the city. Since both of us love using Instagram we had to visit these top New York City Instagram spots. If you haven’t taken a trip to this incredible city be sure to stop at all of these epic sights, it is full of photo ops!
Here is my list of the best places to take pictures in NYC:
Top of the Rock
Empire State Building Lit Up Blue for Autism Awareness Day
Top of the Rock has to be one of the best skyline views of New York. The only downside is that tickets are $26 and often require a wait. We rushed to get there before sunset but sadly the first available tickets were 2 hours later, so I recommend buying tickets online.
DC got a few inches of snow on Presidents’ Day and luckily for me I was staying at the W hotel next to the White House. It came as quite the surprise to me since I had no idea DC would get this amount of snow.
The Washington Monument looked fantastic in the snow and you might recognize this angle from my fall photos. The white space around the monument in photos always bothers me so it’s fun to find trees to frame it. Read More →
DC is beautiful in the fall, especially at Rock Creek Park. Instead of heading to Rock Creek I took a stroll around the Washington Monument and was blown away by what I could capture. Walking around the mall has to be one of my favorite places to photograph in DC.
