Here are some places i like to go…
you can never go wrong with Central Park. i can go there 3 days in a row and see new things and take new sets of pictures. it’s fun to go at different times of the day because you get different lighting. plus if you leave at the west 72 st. exit you can see the beautiful Dakota building (where John Lennon was killed) and you’re not that far from Lincoln Center.
if you want great flowers you should go to the Highline. It’s raised train tracks that was turned into a garden type thing along the west side. it’s amazing at sunset because you can see the sunset reflect in the water and the light is perfect.
You can also go to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden. it’s free i think Tuesdays. it’s pretty much a giant garden with amazing flowers
Coney Island is also a fun place to go. it has pretty much the only amusement park in the 5 boroughs. there’s also a beach and the boardwalk is pretty cool. as well, it has some historical landmarks like the Parachute Jump and the Wonder Wheel. it’s fun for pictures and to spend the day.
you should also look at Time Out (magazine) and The Voice (free newspaper) because they have listings for good events. about a month ago Lincoln Center was doing a swing dancing event so i went. i ended up getting some great pictures. so look for free or cheap events, even if they suck you can always walk around the area. there’s always something in the city! you can also never go wrong with tourist spots (times square, chinatown…) since there’s a reason tourists go there :)
i hope this was helpful! if you have any more questions feel free to ask! enjoy new york!
