Mr. Bee and I just went recently.  It is busy, but not overly so.  I think it’d make a lovely backdrop!  You could also pop into the meatpacking district with its lovely cobblestone streets!

I’ve been dying to do a trash the dress in Coney Island, but an engagement shoot would be fun too 🙂 You have the amusement park, the boardwalk, and the beach all right there! It’s a little on the gritty side though, so it may not be what you want. Battery Park is nice too, imo. The Cloisters might be fun too, but I haven’t been there yet and I also don’t know if they have photography restrictions.

I work by the 18th street entrance for the Highline, and it always looks packed, but I bet you’d get some awesome photos!

oooh, I was just thinking about this with my Fiance.  We were thinking of the Brooklyn Bridge or Central Park.

I did Long Island city by Five-Points building. TOTALLY CITY CHIC AND COOL!  It’s a huge warehouse building with tons of commissioned graphiti. We just walked to different spots and tooks shots. Everyone says they look straight out of a fashion shoot or magazine. We even happened upon a vintage checker taxi cab. Great fun. I posted some of them on my wedding website. I’m gonna use an image to make thank-you postcards for my shower guests. Love’em!

@Hobochic Thanks for the update on your Highline photoshoot!  I didn’t think about how you couldn’t step into the greenery.  Glad to hear the shoot went well though!  I hope you post some pics when you get them! 

@chocobritt Did you have any issues shooting in the Guggenheim and the Met? Did you have to get a permit or special permission?  Those pics must be soooo cool.

@KolaBee  Thanks for sharing the info on the Five Points building – I wasn’t familiar with it.  Your pictures look awesome!   And I love your wedding website, btw!

we did shoot inside the guggenheim but just in the lobby and the security guard let us inside too, though we only stayed on the first level so our photographer can get the entire level shot.

 we didnt’ go inside the Met, stayed outside, the inside was just way too crowded and crazy then…though their policy is no pictures, i’ve seen bees here that have shot inside, and the lobby is free for use
