What you'll do

Let's get right into picture taking in Upper West Side neighborhood of Manhattan. I'll show you some of my favorite hidden gems and let you know all about the area from the perspective of a local, native New Yorker. We are out to get the best pictures and selfies while experiencing some of New York City's finest parks. Expect little to no tourists, a mix of city life, nature, photogenic locations and authenticity!
Other things to note
Guests should be ready to walk about 4-5 miles/6-8 Kilometers. Highly recommend wearing comfortable footwear, bringing a snack or water and a camera if you have one.

Where you'll be

First we'll meet at Starbucks and walk over to Riverside Park. As we go through the park there will be plenty pretty tree-lined paths until we reach the renowned ivy league school, Columbia University. We'll make our way through Columbia University's magical campus to Morningside Park, a hidden gem that overlooks Harlem. From there we'll walk to Central Park and explore the North Woods, fully immersing ourselves in nature's beauty

J'ai beaucoup aimé la visite avec Ben. Je ne connaissais pas bien le parc Riverside, ni le upper west side et c'était une visite très originale. Ben connait le parc comme sa poche et vous fait découvrir les meilleurs spots. C'est une personne très synpathique avec qui, il est très facile et agréable d'échanger. J'ai beaucoup apprécié aussi ses conseils photos, je connais mieux mes paramètres photos maintenant :)
