Wall Street area is nice, but sometimes there’s a crap ton of construction around it. If you’d like a nice parky area with a skyline, check out Battery Park. Or if you want old NY buildings with cobblestones, Southstreet Seaport! :)They’re all near the Wall Street area! 🙂

Also, there are some good eats in Chinatown and the St. Marks area. And ummm…fun things to do……Union Square has a nice market that you browse. Homemade wines, honey, art, fresh produce. There’s a mixture of tourists and locals there though, but it’s not like Times Square (which I hate) because it’s 99% full of tourists.

I had my engagement photos taken here just a week ago (waiting on them now!), but we wanted the NYC skyline, and we didn’t want to be taking our pics in the middle of big crowds, so we ruled out the high line and bryant park, which we were considering before.

In the end, we didn’t take them IN manhattan….we took them here on the New Jersey side.  We took some with the obligatory beautiful NYC skyline behind us, some with brownstones/walking on cute strees, and some in the Hoboken train station since it’s super vintage and adorable.

I’ll post them here when we get them back (hopefully this weekend), because I’m really excited about them!  In any case, if you get a good photographer…it won’t really matter where you take the pics, I’m sure they will be amazing.

 

Good luck!

I agree with the High Line! Really nice and unique, one of my favorite places to go!  Down in the Meat Market area.  It’s a little more old looking with cobblestone streets.

If you are staying in Long Island City you should check out PS1. Its part of the Museum of Modern Art and always has great installations. While your there walk across the street to 5 POINTZ. Its a huge factory that is painted from top to bottom in the most incredible graffiti it’s the largest street art collection on the east coast.

@kmarie719:  Park Slope and Prospect Park will both offer some nice photo ops! Park Slope has a lot of gorgeous brownstone buildings – though it might be weird to just plop down on a stranger’s steps and start taking pictures, you could probably get away with it. Prospect Park is huge and beautiful and even has a restored antique carousel! I think the Brooklyn Botanic Garden requires a permit for professional photography, but I don’t think it’s too expensive and definitely worth looking into. (I’m getting married there, and it’s gorgeous!)
