What you'll do
Have your cameras ready (of course smartphones are welcome too!) as we visit some of New York's smallest, oldest and only sites on this part photo walk, part scavenger hunt, with a little history and pop culture sprinkled in. The urban landscape is also perfect for your Instagram-worthy snapshots, editorial portraits, macro photography and travel and street photography. Whatever your photographic interest, it will be encouraged; anything is photographable! Learn a few historic tidbits while capturing some snapshots of the hidden-in-plain-sight gems, street art, architecture and cinematic New York vistas. And this being a photography excursion, we'll also make a stop at a local photography gallery! Although we will have an itinerary, there's no telling what memorable people or happenings we'll stumble upon along the way, so be open to going "off book"!
