Top 10 Instagrammable Spots in New York


1. L’Appartment Sezane

L’Appartment Sezane is a Parisian dream in the heart of Soho in New York City. L’Apppartment Sezane is a French clothing boutique and is also one of the favorite places of all bloggers and photographers.

But what makes this place Insta-famous is the outside setting. The outside is a Floral Heaven: the beautiful flower arch at the entrance, vintage bicycle, and the cute bench to sit on while taking the pictures.  At the entrance, you will find another Instagrammable spot—tiled floor with the sign “Bonjour New York” on it.

If you feel tired of shopping and want to have a break, they also have a cute lounge area for tea and biscuit.

2. Pietro Nolita

Pietro Nolita is one of the most Instagrammable places in NYC ever. It is an Italian restaurant with a pink décor inside and outside. Everything here is pink: the walls are pink, the chairs are pink, the napkins are pink, and even the bathroom is pink.

This place is a millennial dream place to take tons of selfies and pictures. If you are not hungry for food, you can always take the picture outside of the restaurant. What makes this place unique is its pink color.

It is very rare to see a bright pink-colored spot with a bunch of hearts on the doors in New York City because the city has a lot of brick, brownstones, and grey buildings. This place attracts many people, tourists, and bloggers.

There are lines of girls waiting outside of this restaurant to take photos. For the best chance of getting great pictures, you might want to go there early morning on the weekday. 

3. Washington Square Park

Washington Square Park is the most recognizable Instagram spot in all New York City. The predominant feature of the park is the Washington Arch.  The arch was modeled after the Arc de Triomphe in Paris and was the decoration for a celebration of George Washington’s inauguration.

Today you can see locals, NYU students, tourists, performers, buskers, and musicians. This is the place where you can find the best free musical performances. An annual pillow fight is also happening in Washington Square Park. Not surprising why people love taking pictures here. 

4. Brooklyn Bridge

Brooklyn Bridge is a New York iconic landmark, hence the most Instagrammable place in NYC. Everyone who is visiting New York must-see and takes a picture of it.

The best spot to take a photo is on the Brooklyn side. It’s better to take a train to the High Street- Brooklyn Bridge station. There is the Brooklyn Bridge Pedestrian Walkway.

Find the entrance wouldn’t be a big problem. Once you are on the walkway, you will see a spectacular skyline view. This is the best spot to capture beautiful pictures.


DUMBO stands for Down Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass. It is another iconic Instagrammable place in New York City. Most photographers, bloggers, locals, and tourists love coming here to take beautiful pictures.

The best spot to take pictures is on Water and Washington Street. It gives a perfect view of Washington Bridge with Manhattan in the background. 

6.  Subway 

New York subway has always been the place for creativity. For many photographers, the New York Subway is one of the main places to capture incredible shots of commuters.

Such pictures are also called underground photography. What if you want to take a picture of yourself in the empty train?  It would be a very unique shoot just because the trains in New York City are never empty.

Tess Christine, (@tesschristinexo), shared her tip on how to make the best subway picture.

To get the best shot in an empty train, go to the New York Transit Museum.

– she says.  In the museum, you will learn the history of the New York Subway and have a chance to take the picture in any vintage train. There are not so many people going in and out in the museum, so you will have the whole train to yourself to take a photo shoot.

7. Flatiron

It seems like every tourist who comes to New York goes to Flatiron to take a picture. What makes the Flatiron building unique and iconic is its triangle shape.  The best place to take photos is at the tip of the triangle road divide where 24th street merges to Broadway.  

This spot allows capturing the frontal facade of the building.

If you are having a photo shoot, it is better to wear urban clothing that will look awesome with the Flatiron and yellow cabs in the background.
