  1. I see that New York City is on your list. Might I make a few suggestions, as NYC is where I was born and raised, and I go there at least once a month? In New York City, everyone is taking pictures constantly, and if you are out photographing, chances are that nobody will notice, or care, so this gives you a lot of freedom. Here are some must-see spots.

    The Ellis Island Museum
    The Museum of Natural History
    The Flatiron Building
    The Brooklyn Bridge
    Brooklyn Bridge Park
    Pebble Beach
    The Highline (It’s an old rail line that was converted to a public park.)
    Central Park
    Grand Army Plaza
    Coney Island
    Times Square
    The Manhattan Bridge Overpass can be photographed iconically from Washington Street

    And just so you know, the absolute best place to get pizza in New York City is at Bleeker Street Pizza. It’s on Bleeker Street and 7th Avenue in Greenwich Village, which is about a 7-minute walk from the house where I was born and raised.
