posted on 6th of january, 2009

Hi all,

I'm travelling to New York in Feb as part of the photography course that i'm doing. It's solely a trip to just take photos! I cant wait! it going to be a nice romantic get away, with me and my D50 getting more intimate and learning even more about how it works and what makes it tick...... lol

Any recommendations of places that are a MUST to see??

I have never been there before! Wup WOO!!

Hi Rebecca, Happy New Year! I recently had my first trip to New York and it was amazing. You must try and get to the top of the Empire State Building it's cliched but definitely worth it. I timed it for the sunset. I would suggest booking online before you go and if you can afford a little extra I would recommend the fasttrack tickets that let you skip the queues which can get quite long. Walking across the Brooklyn Bridge was also great and you get great views back across Manhatten. If you want to get shots of the Statue of Liberty but are not that bothered about visiting the actual island try going on the Statton Island Ferry which is free - that way you get the views but without the massive groups of tourists. Grand Central station has beautiful architecture and one more thing to suggest would be checking out the diners for eggs over easy!! Have a great trip and wrap up warm if the weather is not great - it was -5 when I went!

That is going to be great, NY is a wonderful city. Of course besides all the main buildings look at the little things like their street lights, fire escapes, drain covers, etc. You will have lots of great images I am sure, look forward to seeing the collection.

Hi Rebecca, That sounds so exciting! I lived in NY all my life until 4 yrs ago when we retired to Florida. Some of the more colorful places to visit and shoot images would be, the Botanical Gardens in the Bronx, Times Square, Rockerfeller Center, Chinatown, and of course, the Bronx zoo and any of the amazing architecture of the old buildings and churches. Have a wonderful time.

Also near Poughkeepsie, NY is a historial site called the Vanderbilt Mansion - it is absolutely beautiful, but they do have a restriction on cameras - you cannot use a flash inside the building. It was difficult for me because I had a plain point and shoot film camera with no way to turn off the flash (so I tried covering it up with my fingers) :). But it is beautiful and I`m sure I could take much better photos with my new camera. Here it the link for the Vanderbilt Mansion: http://www.nps.gov/vama

Exciting! I visited Beacon and Poughkeepsie, NY with my family in June 2006 (my dad grew up there) - about a half hour or so away from New York City - and both are quaint small towns that would be fun to photograph if you are able to go there. Poughkeepsie has the Culinary Institute of America (also known as the CIA) :). It is a school that trains chefs and there are 2-3 restaurants in the school that serve DELICIOUS food! The grounds around the institute are beautiful!
