Instagram Spots Around Gateway!

Aug 12, 2022

Battery Park City has tons of gorgeous views and places to take shots of. Check out a few of our recommendations down below: 

One World Observatory NYC

This observatory is located on floors 100-102 of One World Trade Center and offers a great view of the city. Come early in the mornings if you want an emptier experience for clearer photo ops or go at sunset/night time for an extra scenic background. Despite being a tourist destination, this place is still a great experience with all of the exhibits and shops it offers. It is an iconic place everyone must visit once in New York!

Battery Park City Esplanade

The Esplanade runs the entire length of Battery Park City and has gorgeous, unobstructed views of the river, Statue of Liberty, and Ellis Island. There’s nothing better than taking a long, relaxing walk along the Esplanade. This spot is great to take pictures as a stunning backdrop or ride on a bike along the path. 


Loopy Doopy Rooftop Bar

Located on the 16th floor of Conrad New York Downtown, this beautiful rooftop bar overlooks the Statue of Liberty and New York Harbor. This bar is a picture perfect worthy moment at any time of the day, especially at sunset. They’re best known for their signature Poptail drink, which features a Mom & Icepops Boozy pop.


Rockefeller Park

This cute park beside the Hudson River has lawns, gardens, public artwork and a playground that are perfect for a photo op! There are so many places to snap some stunning shots at, whether it’s giant lawn grass, lily pond, or against the sparkling waters of the Hudson river. Idea: bring a cute blanket and picnic to take some pics on the lawn. Perfect summer vibes!
