The best NYC Instagram spots #4

This is my 4th post to share the most picturesque spots to take your best NYC Instagram’s. I love helping NYC dreamers discover some of New York’s greatest treasures, including the best spots to take pictures! I LOVE taking pictures in the city I love so much and I figured I would start sharing all my favorite Instagram spots so you can capture some of these amazing views too!

All photos in this series are taken by me and I will share the exact location and directions so you can check it out too!

This weeks best Instagram spot is…Weehawken, NJ.

Yup, that’s right, I said NEW JERSEY! You have to head outside of the Concrete Jungle of Manhattan to be able to capture the beauty of the skyline. One of my favorite spots to see the skyline is along the waterfront in Weehawken, NJ. I’ve watched the sunrise come up here, and I’ve watched the city lights glowing at night in the middle of winter. Any time of year, any time of day or night, it’s stunning. So, let’s get started on your instructions how to get there!

Weehawken is just across the Hudson River from Manhattan.  I really like going to the Hamilton Park area specifically. As you can see in this Google Map below, Manhattan is on the right, and Weehawken is on the left outlined in red. (You can click on these maps and they will open in Google maps). If you don’t have a car to get to this spot, the easiest way to get there from Manhattan would be the bus (check out details at www.njtransit.com).  Screen Shot 2016-08-10 at 2.59.22 PM

If you go to the street view in google, you will see just how stunning this view is! There are actually houses on this street! Can you imagine waking up to this view every morning?!?! (click the photo to open in Google Maps)
