I can’t believe I have finally been in New York City! I’ve met so many amazing people during this trip, and I hope one day I can visit NYC again.

Note : I’m a street photographer, so I’m not in a lot of these photos and they may not even have people in them. The principle is the same though, take a selfie, street photography or however you wish, these are some of the top Instagrammable places in New York Trip.

1. DUMBO

No it wasn’t named after the Disney’s baby elephant. DUMBO stands for ‘Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass’.

2. Central Park

It is New York’s version of London’s Hyde Park except that it is way ‘cooler’. When you are in the park, you can actually see skyscrapers skylines above you. Central Park has been shot in many movies including the classics like Home Alone 2.

I got this shot from standing on top of the piled rocks close to Inscope Arch.

3. Flatiron Building

Yes, it is the Daily Bugle from Sam Raimi’s Spiderman and I believe it will be the Daily Bugle in the Marvel cinematic universe as well. It has been used as many office in Hollywood movies for it’s unique architecture of its exterior.

4. Westfield and One World Trade Center

The rebuilt World Trade Center and Westfield mall is another architectural wonder. A must visit place to be included in your feed.

5. New York Stock Exchange

Pose with the famous Fearless Girl. It is a bronze sculpture by Kristen Visbal representing a defiant four foot high girl. Originally it was facing the ‘Charging Bull’, but it is later relocated in front of the NYSE building.

6. Photo with a Yellow Taxi

No New York trip is complete without a photo with the Yellow Taxi. One of the very few photos with myself in it.

7. The High Line

1.45-mile-long elevated linear park is a must visit place in New York. Just like the Central Park, there’s so many spots that you can take photos but particularly this is the photo that most people often take.

Yup. Here’s my version.

8. Helicopter Ride

New York is one of the best cities to have a helicopter ride or fly your drone. With the amazing skyscrapers, it’s impossible not to be amazed with what you can see from above.

9. The Statue of Liberty

Of course, if you have never been to the Statue of Liberty (or at least seen it from afar) then you have never been to New York City!

10. Times Square

New Yorkers don’t really go to Times Square. Why? Because it’s too crowded. It is still however a must visit place. In fact, I spent couple of hours admiring the beautiful lights and the digital billboards during the last day of my trip.
