Brooklyn Heights Promenade
Nestled in the namesake, sleepy residential neighborhood of Brooklyn Heights, the Brooklyn Heights Promenade offers breathtaking views of lower Manhattan as well as hidden oasis spots throughout the park.
Hidden under Park Avenue right outside Grand Central Terminal is Pershing Square. If you’re a fan of classic NYC diner aesthetic and neon signs, this is a must-shoot.
Roosevelt Island is just an F train or tram car ride away from Manhattan. Located in the middle of the East River, Roosevelt Island was once used for hospitals but now you can visit fo stunning views of the Long Island City Pepsi-Cola sign and midtown Manhattan.
Located up the street from the iconic Manhattan Bridge shot, you can find several colorful murals and walls. The technicolor wall below can be found on York Street and Fleet Alley.
Fort Tryon Park and The Cloisters
All the way on almost the most northern tip of Manhattan is Fort Tryon Park. The park is home to The Met Cloisters, a museum dedicated for medieval art and architecture, which makes for a great styled photoshoot background. Wander around the park to find other hidden spots as well as lush greenery you don’t often see in New York City.
Greene Street & Washington Place
Bloggers and photographers tend to flock to SoHo for its cobblestone streets. To avoid the usual spots you see on Instagram, check out Greene Street and Washington Place just east of Washington Square Park for equally beautiful cobblestones and a downtown background.
