1) Brooklyn Bridge & Dumbo Brooklyn, New York City

This is one of my favorite spots when visiting New York City. The historic neighborhoods, incredible views, and the cobblestone streets make this spot a must see. Here you will find yourself overlooking the Brooklyn Bridge, New York Skyline and the Manhattan Bridge.

  3. Capture the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridge from the Dumbo Waterfront.
  4. Feel like a kid again on the carousel

2) Times Square

The infamous, famous Time Square is ranked as one of most Instagrammed locations in 2017. Definitely get a picture behind the giant billboards and New Year’s Eve Ball Drop.
