Whether you have a DSLR or smartphone, photo opportunities present themselves all the time in New York. You might stumble across some frozen camel milk at a grocery store on 42nd and 11th avenue or find your way across the George Washington Bridge for an afternoon hike in the Palisades.

There is a great documentary on HBO called, Birders: The Central Park Effect. The movie shows the huge range of birds who live in the park and use it as a stop over on their migratory flights.
