I love New York City with a passion. I may not like the taxes, I may not like all the people or stereotypes, but I love the escape it grants to me. All you need is an idea or feeling, and get up and go do it. There are couple spots I totally love to go to in New York City and I feel I should share them with you and a brief info on them. Throughout the year on my blog I will showcases each location with great photography, to show you why I love them and how beautiful and inspiring they are.
1. Brooklyn Bridge City Hall
After hoping off the 4,5, or 6 train at this stop you will see so many people hanging out and walking across the Brooklyn Bridge. It is quite a very cool experience walking across. So much culture, and everyday (well week) is a new encounter. I love this area and just the feeling of escape. Just people and cool visuals and small parks and places to just relax and enjoy a new york city day. I walked the bridge about 4-5 times, and it takes about 20-30 minutes based on how many people and how much time you stop to take photos. It’s so awesome. I even did a video walking the bridge and the visuals around, check out my youtube channel. (youtube.com/rawmultimedia)
2. South Street Seaport / Pier 17
Though second on my list, the seaport is by far my favorite spot in New York City. When the spring time and summer is around, I go here to cool out, watch the people and have some drinks. I have brought couple of friend to my usual spot and they love it. Even you see my facebook profile I have tons of tons of boats, people, activities, me with a drink in hand :), Brooklyn and from there you can see the Brooklyn bridge, Staten island ferry and even helicopters passing by. They is so much to take in at this location on the pier, and only walking distance to my next favorite spot Battery Park. Trust me you must go see it.
3. Battery Park / Battery Park City (Bowling Green)
This is the most coolest, most mello location to have a date or go to look out at the water. And guess what is across from the water, the Statue of Liberty and New Jersey (not quite the Jersey Shore) but a terrific places to grab a book and sit and read or go to work out. I did a few photoshoots here and plan to do so much more because it’s like a mini city and so many places to cover.
4. 14th Street, Union Square
My mid way love of freedom. I can walk to the village or walk upwards to midtown manhattan in just a few blocks. I love Union Square for all the cool stores, fashion and oh yea the crazy people. I mostly go to 14th street to relax and be inspired. Also I love the Barnes and Noble in the area as well as one of my favorite Photography stores to check out new cool stuff, of course hiding my wallet. I will spend on new gadgets. So much culture and fun around the area.
5. 34th Street, Fashion Ave., MSG
I love fashion, I love creativity. I love H&M, Macys, Victoria’s Secret, Madison Square Garden, Jacob Javitz Center and much more and only walking distance from 42nd street, oh my god. 34th street, though crowded and crazy, I will have to say is one of the best location to go shopping and be in the middle of things in New York City. I just love it. So much fashion and clothing stores to make your head spin. As well as blocks away from the FUSE studios and the world greatest photography, video and audio stores in the world, B & H Photo and Video. So if you know me, I am multimedia producer and director, so 34th street is like heaven. Then again don’t even go when it is raining. I am just saying, it could be hectic unless you go to the Manhattan mall and have a blast at JCPenney and live life.
Thanks for letting me share my favorite spots with you. I have a ton more and more each year I discover and turn them into classic places. Also if you are ever in New York City and need a tour guide, I am your guy. 🙂
