Filming & Photography USA


Instagram has allowed any traveller to become a photographer. We now have a platform to put up those images we spent hours searching to find – and in New York there are many Instagrammable spots you simply need to capture and upload.

If you ever find yourself in New York and want to spruce up your Insta-feed, here are the most Instagram-worthy spots in The Big Apple.

1. The Manhattan Bridge

This is our favourite photo spot in all of New York. To get there take a walk over the Brooklyn Bridge and into an area called Dumbo and you will be met with this incredible view of the Manhattan Bridge. If you take the image centered you will capture the Empire State Building perfectly in line with the lower circle of the bridge. 

2. The Statue Of Liberty

Such an iconic and historical part of New York, this is a photo opportunity you can not miss. We recommend you catch the ferry over to Liberty Island where you will be able to take incredible shots of not only the State of Liberty, but the city skyline as well.

3. The Flat Iron Building

The Flat Iron Building, originally known as the Fuller Building, is located at 175 Fifth Ave in Manhattan. It was built in 1902 and was one of the tallest buildings in the city. It sits on a triangular island-block, giving it the unusual wedge shape. If you take a shot face on it looks as though the building is extremely thin.

4. The Central Park Lake

If you are wondering were to take the best shot while strolling through Central Park we recommend finding a good spot at the lake. It is a beautiful, picturesque 18-acre lake with an incredible back drop of the city.

5. Times Square

Okay, how can you visit New York and not take a photo of Times Square? We love images that capture the hustle and bustle of the craziest part of town.


6. The City Skyline

We recommend heading to the top of the Empire State Building or the Top of the Rock for some of the best vantage points to take the perfect shot of New York’s city skyline. If you have the opportunity, a helicopter ride over the city would be incredible for some epic city shots!
