What you'll do
We'll visit New York's oldest, deepest, smallest, highest and "only" sites and sights on this photo excursion. Learn historic tidbits while capturing some quintessential New York photos and shots of lesser known New York areas from different vantage points. You'll even have the option at one point to choose what we'll see -- kinda like a 'choose your own adventure'! This excursion is best be suited for travelers, photographers and hobbyists interested in history, architecture, nature. Each location was chosen for its picturesque & superlative nature. Photographers of all levels are welcome on this excursion. Sometimes to get "the shot" you have to trek a bit, so be prepared for that (even I still get winded!). We'll do a lot of walking and Manhattan is quite hilly, believe it or not. Stairs & steep hills are part of this excursion. I recommend wearing sneakers (trainers, tennis shoes) and not ballet flats or sandals. Also make sure you have an unlimited Metrocard for use on public transportation. If you don't have one, I can walk you through the steps to get one.
