With New York section call outs being a huge success; an amazing 100+ locations were submitted in just a few weeks, it’s time to think about our very best and beloved NYC spots.

To help with the brainstorming, Lawrence, our trusty NYC editor has come up with an ocean full of Lomography minded locations that could be included. In no way are they musts but we generally wanted to get the creative juices and locations flowing.
