I may be going to New York here in about a month. Does anyone know of any good places to take pics. i.e. of statue of liberty.. etc. If you have GPS coordinates, that would be even better.

Thanks,

Mark Lebbin

Are you talking about just New York City or New York in general?

What subject matter are you looking for?

I think, in the city, that pictures of the "hustle and bustle" that capture the moment are awesome. Find a sidewalk vendor serving gyros and catch his business on lunch hour (and make sure you get one yourself!). Catch people waiting for the subway to stop, with the subway whizzing past in the background.

If you like landscapes and history, head upstate. West Point (I don't know what's still open to the public since 9/11). The Hudson Valley. The country's oldest winery is Brotherhood in Washingtonville. They have directions on their website. Though this time of the year, HV landscapes are kind of dismal. Around the Newburgh area (and the HV in general) there is a wealth of history around the revolutionary war. Washington's Headquarters.

Sorry, New York City... I would have to say landmarks... I am going to only be there a couple of days so I know I won't be able to cover much. But I always see these pics off the shore somewhere with Statue of Liberty in the background. I am assuming that could be done any where..

I guess I should add to this request.. what lens(es) should I have I have a 70-200 2.8 and the standard 18-70 (I think) that came with my digital..

Thanks again,

Mark
