NYC for a day - where to go?
Mar 21, 2012

I need to go to New York next month on business. Since I've never really visited, I'm tempted to extend the trip so I have a full day to explore a little. I have zero interest in the tourist side of NYC. The whole draw for me is that NYC is packed with history and interesting new stuff to photograph.

I very much like things that are old (either pristine or in decay). I'm not candid street shooter. I'm more interested in cityscape, architecture, shapes and colors. I will probably not bring a tripod. Just my D300s, 24-70 and 10-24.

So what places would a local go to spend a day practicing photography?

I'm pretty comfortable going anywhere but being from out of town, I'd like to avoid the worst areas.

Also, any recommendations for cheap accommodations? All I need is a bed and a shower, hopefully both clean. My meetings are in Manhattan near Times Square but I don't need to stay in that area.
