new york city in instagram photos

After we returned from New York City a week and a half ago, I was borderline obsessed with convincing my husband that we should pick up and move to the East Village neighborhood. We found 15+ awesome restaurants in the span of two blocks (we like to eat), plus drip coffee shops on each corner. Is this Heaven? No, it’s the East Village in all it’s glory. Then we looked up rent for a one bedroom apartment and had heart palpitations. We’ll keep our townhouse in the ‘burbs, thank you very much.

Even though this area was our favorite to explore, there was a lot to see in NYC and the overall experience was great. Here is New York City in Instagram photos:

    Looks like you had a great time! I live about five hours from NYC but don’t get up there very often. I’d like to go up next summer or fall and explore like you did…looks like you found some great spots! The last two times I went to NYC was with a church group and I didn’t get to explore like I really want to. Someday….

    I’m from Europe and I’ve been there twice, in the summer. I like to come back someday in the winter, with Christmas or New Years Eve :)

    I’ve been once and absolutely fell in love with the east village as well. However, I went in March which is maybe the worst time to go because it’s still cold, but you don’t get any of the snow of Christmas decorations to make walking through freezing ran worthwhile.

    I looove New York and I’m so annoyed that I’ve had to cancel my trip this year. Doesn’t look like I’ll be going back for a long time now but I have lots of photo memories!

    My sister and I are heading there early october – can’t decide if I want to bring my 5DMIII camera. Do you recommend a nice DSLR or will iPhone and point and shoot be fine? Also what is a must see??
