    Anyone local to NYC?

    I'm going to be there for a weekend in August and I'm looking for some ideas on best places to shoot! I'm open to anything really, if you've got a favorite borough you like to shoot from or a favorite street with awesome views, or where to shoot a bridge from. Anything really. We are staying on the West Side of Manhattan near the Hells Kitchen district.

    Thanks for any tips guys!

    I suggest Dumbo in Brooklyn, reachable by ferry, subway, or walking over the Brooklyn or Manhattan bridge.

    Awesome! We wanted to see the Brooklyn Bridge for sure, so we will go that way.

    What I don't know is this: how safe is it to be out with expensive gear in the dark? Getting out before dawn and after sunset make for good images, but at what cost? If safe, I'd go for that! Sunrise, sunsets, night shots of the city that never sleeps.

    I can definitely see how that could be an issue! I don't carry much equipment, and I'm in pretty good shape! I think I will be okay.

    One thing that could make for some interesting photos and that will be convenient for you on the west side is the High Line: Visit the High Line | Friends of the High Line It's an old elevated line converted into a walkway. Towards the southern end, there are some cafes as well.

    It starts at W34th and goes down to Gansevoort (below 12th St in the Village). So from Hell's Kitchen, just head south on 10th Avenue and you'll find the northern end of the High Line.

    Hudson Yards, right near the 34th street entry point:

    A quieter section, somewhere in the 20s (iirc) heading south:

    Ahhh man yes! The high line is definitely at the top of our list right near the Brooklyn Bridge!

    Thanks for the suggestions and awesome pictures. Are they film or digital?
