    The fountain area in Central Park is the best

    It’s so pretty…and there are those neat stairs.

    Try the West Village if you can – so many winding streets and hidden gems make for some great shots!  πŸ™‚

    If you start out at Washington Square Park and walk west, you’ll come upon some great streets – Grove, Bedford, etc.  It’s very winding and you can get a bit lost, but that’s part of the fun!  πŸ™‚

    I love the idea of the zoo! You could get so many cute shots with the animals πŸ™‚ I personally am not doing anything in Times Square or Rockafeller Center because I don’t like the idea of TONS of tourists/other people being in my pics. Of course, the parks all get crowded too, but I feel like in Times Square, you would become another attraction. Of course, if you like lots of attention, go for it! πŸ™‚

    In addition to the West Village, the brownstones on the UWS and UES are also really pretty backdrops. There’s also Washington Square Park and Riverside Park, if you’re looking for more outdoor spots.

    Hi! We had our e-shoot in DUMBO, and we loved it!  It kinda has a more urban/industrial feel, so depends on if you’re looking for that or more neighborhood-y or park-ish.

    West Village and the Meatpacking District (where we had ours). Also the steps of the big NY Public Library building?

    tribeca has a lot of cobbled streets and cool warehouse-type architecture, and not as crowded as the west village. but any of them are fantastic. how fun!

    Since you have only two hours, I would recommend walking across the Brooklyn Bridge and once in Brooklyn staying close to the water but heading in a general northernly direction. Lots of warehouse-y and cobble stone streets. Love love LOVE that area. Good luck!
