[DO] The Four Most Instagram-able Spots in Our Neighborhood!
The most important part of taking a really great Instagram photo? The backdrop. We’ve created a few photo-ops for Donald STORY but our neighborhood is filled with spots to stop, snap, and share.
The High Line:
There are few places prettier (and pretty Instagram worthy) than the High Line in NYC on a sunny afternoon. With nearly 2 miles of elevated photo ops, fom the planted stretches of wildflowers and grasses to the panoramic views of the bustle below, its the perfect place to soak up the sun and the “Likes” from all your followers.
Eduardo Kobra’s Kissing Mural:
Donald’s lip print will always have our heart. But street artist Eduardo Kobra’s kissing mural is one of the reasons we love our neighborhood. A technicolor take on the iconic VJ Day Kissing Photo in Times Square, it’s equal parts symbolic and outrageously easy on the eyes.
Joseph Beuys 7000 Oaks:
Located on 22nd street between 10th and 11th Ave., part of the magic of this installation is that you can walk by it without even noticing. Keen eyes will spot large slabs of basalt placed systematically next to the trees lining the sidewalk. Oh snap! These are part of an installation that Joseph Beuys began in Germany in the 80s and brought to NY in the 90s.
With everything from lobster to artisan coffee, Chelsea Market is a food pic lover’s paradise. But don’t get snap (or snack) happy too quickly. The block long and a block wide building houses over thirty-five vendors purveying everything from soup to nuts, wine to coffee, cheese to cheesecake, and serves as the permanent residence for the Artist and Fleas, an indie maker’s market.
