How To Spend An Instagram Worthy Time in NYC

Instagrammable Autumn is here and she wasted no time!

The leaves were just green days ago, now piling up on sidewalks all over the city in tones of pale yellows and paper-bag-browns. Sky Room has put together a quick list of Instagrammable places to see when spending just a few days in NYC, this Fall.

Here are our ways on: “How To Spend The Most Instagrammable Fall Weekend in NYC.

Central Park Foliage – Instagram Meter:  📸📸📸📸📸
Cost: FREE

From vibrant reds, oranges and yellows in The North Woods to deep bronzes from the Kwanzan Cherry Trees on the west side’s Reservoir, there is no better place to spend a day taking photos than Central Park.

With more colors than the rainbow, and the fact that it is free, it’s an absolute MUST during your stay, this Autumn. Check out their awesome map of all the foliage happening in Central Park, here.

Empire State Building 
– Instagram Meter:  📸📸📸📸
Cost: $37-$175

Downtown Manhattan is cool and all, but climbing to the top of most skyscrapers there won’t give you the best views and feel for how grand NYC is. Not only will you miss seeing a bustling midtown below in full swing, but you’ll never really understand the magic of having Times Square right under your feet.

And, if unobstructed Eastern and Western views are not reason enough to visit the most iconic building in history, then maybe its breathtaking Sunrise is. 

Fun Fact: The Empire State Building is the first building in human history to exceed 100 floors.


And What About Some Instagram Pop Ups, You Ask?
