In the digital age, it is all about the gram. Instagrammers, casual users or holidayers, we are always on the look out for the perfect photo location. It must be colorful, Instagrammable, beautiful. After all, a good backdrop is 75% of the photo. A memorable, recognizable and iconic location will guarantee likes and engagement. If you live in New York City, you are in luck. Simply because the Big Apple has a lot of Instagrammable walls pretty much all over the city.
Regardless of where you go, you will find some Instagrammable walls. Graffiti, street art, murals, pretty much every street corner turns into a photo opportunity. Even in Wall Street, yes. While London is known for its gorgeous Instagrammable displays, it is street art that gets the attention in New York City. A bit like in Shore-ditch and Brick Lane (still in London).
New York City offers a lot of Instagrammable walls over all five boroughs. Howver, it is in the Lower East Side as well as Bushwick and DUMBO that you will find most of those murals and street arts. This makes it super convenient should you want to organize a photoshoot with multiple outfits and sneakers. All your locations in the same place!
