Visit New York's oldest, deepest, smallest, highest and "only" sites and sights on this photo excursion lead by native New Yorker and professional photographer, Abigail Ekue. Learn a little NY history and quirks while capturing some quintessential New York photos and shots of lesser known New York areas from different vantage points. The urban landscape is also perfect for your travel photography, street photography, editorial portraits and Instagram-worthy snapshots.
Travel photographers and hobbyists will have ample opportunities to capture scenic NY skylines, classic architecture, street art and nature. Each location was chosen for its picturesque, superlative and/or quirky nature. Photographers of all levels are welcome on this excursion.
This excursion takes place in Manhattan and is broken up into neighborhood "chunks". We will start in Washington Heights and weave our way across and down the island. We will visit some of New York's trendiest, up-and-coming and under-the-radar neighborhoods. We will walk and take public transportation to visit the various locations for photo ops. Using an unlimited MetroCard is suggested. If you don't have one, I can walk you through the steps to buy one. The tour concludes in Lower Manhattan.
Sometimes to get "the shot" you have to trek a bit, so be prepared for a lot of walking. I recommend wearing sneakers (trainers, tennis shoes) and not ballet flats or sandals. We will be in parks, climb stairs & navigate cobblestones and steep hills during the excursion (Manhattan is quite hilly, believe it or not!).
Note the time when booking. Day & evening excursions are offered for different views of NYC. Please be aware that access and/or vantage points to some of the locations may differ depending on the time of the excursion.
