If you’re looking for Times Square, you won’t find it on this list. Here we’re talking about the real spots to Instagram in the city. Whether it’s the best brunch spot to take a photo at or where you can dive into a pool of sprinkles for the ‘gram, this list has got the most insta worthy spots NYC has to offer.
Okay, so you’ve probably seen this spot a thousand and one times, but we couldn’t help include it on our list. New Yorkers steer clear of Times Square, so this street has become their most popular spot. Head on over to Washington Street to enjoy this pretty magical view of the Manhattan Bridge yourself.
2. The Brooklyn Bridge
While you might have to fight throngs of tourists for a photo, it’s worth it.
3. Barney’s Downtown
Who doesn’t love a good staircase? This hypnotic staircase doesn’t just lead to amazing shoes, it also leads to the perfect insta post.
4. The Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club
Yup, you read that right, a shuffleboard club. Leave it to Brooklyn to make shuffleboard cool again. While the hipsters flock here to drink and get their shuffleboard on, you’ll find us trying to take the perfect picture in front of this flamingo wallpaper in the bathroom.
5. The Museum of Ice Cream
What’s better for your feed than diving into a pool of sprinkles (yup, we’re serious). There’s a new location launching this Spring, so keep an eye out.
6. Bluestone Lane
We couldn’t make this list without adding in a brunch spot. With their latte art and their picture perfect avocado toast this is a favorite of NYC brunch crowd. Don’t be surprised if you see more than one person standing on a chair to get the perfect shot.
7. The Oculus
The Oculus at the World Trade Center might just be the chicest transit stop we’ve ever seen (sorry Grand Central!)
8. The Garrett
A good neon sign pic, is pretty much Instagram gold…now all you have to do is caption it.
9. Whitney Museum
While we’d suggest actually looking at the art, it can’t hurt to snap a quick photo.
10. The Flatiron Building
Last but not least head on over to 175 Fifth Avenue, for this quintessential NYC landmark.
