About New York thru the Lens - Wall Streets Up - Brooklyn Bridge Down Private Tour
Booking a private photo expert allows you to select the below carefully planned routes or when your photo guide contacts you directly to make desired changes where possible according to your interest. Meet up on the steps of Federal Hall where George Washington was inaugurated as the first U.S. President. From there youll get a nice view of the New York Stock Exchange nearby. Most of the streets in the Financial District are extremely narrow. This combined with some of Manhattans tallest skyscrapers creates an experience similar to standing at the bottom of a canyon. Many of these streets see very little sunshine even at high noon. This will create unique opportunities for low-light daytime photography. As the sun trickles its way down into the bottom of the canyon well venture over to the historic South Street Seaport district. The Seaport is known for its pedestrian-friendly streets as well as its many shops. You will get a distinct feel for old New York Harbor days of dockworkers and fish markets a time when the piers were bustling areas of commerce. From the Seaport well make our way up toward City Hall and the Municipal Building both of which are near the entrance to the Brooklyn Bridge. Once you start walking over the Brooklyn Bridge youll get a steady sense of rising above the smaller buildings below. In fact when the Brooklyn Bridge was built people walking across it for the first time were elated by the experience of being so high above the river that birds flew below them beneath the bridges walkway. As you approach the Gothic arches of the Manhattan-side tower picture possibilities will abound. Lines repetition symmetry will all beg to be photographed. If the sun is out there may be possibilities for interesting silhouettes. Once youre well onto the bridge youll be able to turn around and take in breathtaking views of Lower Manhattan. Youll be able to see Midtown Manhattan off in the distance. Boats will be in the water below and many people will be enjoying the bridge. Get out your telephoto lens and photograph the Statue of Liberty to the southwest. A convenient stairway will allow you to exit the bridge on the Brooklyn side and put you in the neighborhood of Fulton Ferry which is similar to the South Street Seaport. At Fulton Ferry Landing and Park known for its spectacular vantage of the looming Brooklyn Bridge youll be able to go right up to the water and take in the view. From Fulton Ferry its just a short walk over to DUMBO an acronym for Down Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass an industrial factory district with picturesque cobblestone streets.
