It took me a 30 hour plane trip from Perth to get to the big apple- New york and it was so worth it! I had two days to sight see before I shot a beautiful couples elopement and then it was time to fly home- so what did I do?
Walk the streets in the Upper East side. This is the stuff of movies- mansions with door mans and chandeliers and beautiful iconic New York streets.
Brooklyn Bridge- Go before 6am and you will have the bridge all to yourself. Anytime after 9 and the tourists come out and its almost impossible to get a fab photo without a lot of people in the background.
New York Public Library- A stunning building right in the centre of the city on 5th avenue.
Visit Dumbo- A little suburb lined with cool cafe’s right on the river with Manhattan as a backdrop. Again, go early in the morning if you’d like street photos without 100 tourists in the background all taking selfies.
Catch a Taxi.
Dont leave this city without jumping into an iconic yellow taxi.
Top of the Rock- for the best view of the city.
Find some $1 New York Pizza! This is not a joke, $1!
Walk through Central park! I had no idea it was so lush and beautiful.
Walk the streets in Soho.
