Photographing the city is a favorite hobby of many New York City residents. Lazy Saturdays and Sundays are perfect for putting your walking shoes on, packing your camera and taking a photo tour around the city. With smart phones and instagram you don’t even need to carry a DSLR around and can get instant feedback on your pics as you post to social networks (#nofilter, #realtime, #pleasepleaselikeme and all that.)
Each neighborhood is different but I would recommend spending time on streets as opposed to avenues. I like to go to Riverside Park located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan because it is an open space with different options for pictures including the Hudson River, plant life and great sunsets.
