Instagram Spots in New York City

New York City is THE place to get some insane city pics along with some shots of urban greenery. In this crowded place, It's hard to pick where to stop for photos.

Here are some of my favorite places to take pictures:

Central Park

Central Park is a giant and within it are so many interesting and unique spots. Take the time to explore while taking photos, you won't regret it.


Conservatory Garden

Although the garden is located inside central park, I wanted to give it its own section since it's so far away from the popular parts of the park. The garden is stunning and has so many gorgeous features. It's definitely worth the detour.


The Metropolitan Museum of Art

The Met is a gorgeous museum. The exhibits are so unique and there are a lot of places with natural light. There's so much to see and explore and of course, take pictures of. Like any museum, some parts are very dim and make it challenging to get a good photo since you cannot use flash.


The Met Cloisters

I am absolutely in love with this museum. The courtyards are breathtaking, and the inside is beautiful as well (although it's a bit difficult to get pictures while inside). If you have time, I would recommend hitting both The Cloisters and The Metropolitan Museum of Art since tickets are interchangeable.


Washington Square Park

The park is amazing for people watching, and of course, taking pictures. Even though the park is typically busy, it's super easy to get a good shot in front of the iconic arch.


China Town

China Town has so much to offer. There are great shops, food, and you can get tons of cool pictures day or night.


Manhattan Bridge Arch

If you find yourself near Chinatown, make a pit stop at the arch! You can get some nice photos without worrying about anyone being in the background.


Time Square

Time Square is one of the most iconic parts of New York. With all the lights, it makes a cool place for pictures night or day.


Pietro Nolita

Pietro Nolita is a super pink restaurant inside and out. The food isn't anything special, BUT, the outside of the restaurant is adorable. It's right in Nolita, and if you're in the area, def check it out and take some pictures.


The Subway

The subway system is a staple of New York, and you can get some pretty damn good pictures from it. The stations are usually grimy, but it's part of the charm. The entrances, trains, and the inside of the station can all be photo-worthy. The best part? You don't even have to go out of your way because they're EVERYWHERE, and you'll likely be going on one anyways.
