“It’s an iconic New York landmark. Makes a great background for portraits. You have the view of New York City skyline and Brooklyn Bridge’s classic architecture. Recommended place for capturing special moments, like a vacation, proposals, engagement and more!” (Paolo)
Brooklyn Bridge is an icon of New York City that can’t be missed. Stretching across the East River, Brooklyn Bridge opened up back in 1883 to carry traffic between Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn. You can also capture the drop-dead gorgeous views of the Lower Manhattan skyline for your photos! We recommend starting from the Manhattan side so that you can end your walk at DUMBO while enjoying the great view along the way.
“A huge area that has many photo spots with different views. You can get both Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan Bridge in the background depending on where you are situated in DUMBO. It’s suitable for engagement, fashion or street style photoshoot.” (Paolo)
This neighborhood, once dominated by aging warehouses, has been reimagined with upscale shops, apartment buildings, and offices that offer some of the best waterfront views of Manhattan including the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridge! The Washington Street at DUMBO is a famous spot for capturing moments there with a peek of the Empire State Building through the legs of the Manhattan Bridge.
“The many advertising billboards make it iconic! It has great lighting for your photos of any moments, the bustling atmosphere also adds to the character of the location.” (Anna)
Time Square is at the heart of New York City. Know for its nickname as “the crossroad of the world”, There’s so much to this place: shopping, restaurants, TV studios, the New Years Eve Celebrations, and the many many people from around the world that visit this iconic spot. The theatres of Broadway and the huge number of advertising billboards make it one of New York’s iconic landmarks in the world.
A place with lots of trees, suitable if you want to be surrounded by nature. Very nice to explore and find picturesque spots. Also great for taking photos of family, engagement, vacation moments and more.” (Petro)
Central Park, a place of nature that’s juxtaposed by the surrounding skyscrapers, is also one of the best places to capture your moments in New York City! Some of the famed spots in this park include the Bethesda Fountain, The Bow Bridge, Gapstow Bridge, and the lake. Central Park during winter is also an interesting sight to see, where a festival called the Winter Jam is held and many would come for a chance to go ice skating.
