NYC's Most Instagrammable Walls

NYC's Most Instagrammable Walls

New York City is a treasure trove of incongruities: for every trendy nightclub and sleek skyscraper, there's a national landmark and grassy park nestled in between. Even in the concrete jungle that is the Big Apple, there is a ton of art waiting to be found—and no, we're not talking about the kind you'll see at the Met and the MoMA. Seek, and you shall find that the city is a veritable canvas for artists, with a wealth of candy–colored hot spots that are not only beautiful to look at, but provide an Instagram–worthy backdrop to any photoshoot. We've done the hard work for you and put together the top three walls you must visit, plus the photo–ready looks we've curated for each one. The only ticket you need is a Metro card.


Find It: 45th Street, between 2nd and 3rd Avenue
Amid workers bustling to and from their jobs in Manhattan's Midtown East neighborhood, you'll find this wall on 45th street. The colorful stripes offer a bit of respite from the area's on–the–go attitude, and a white lace dress paired with a rainbow clutch matches that juxtaposition.



Find It: Orchard Street between Rivington and Delancey Street
The candy–colored design on this wall in the Lower East Side is practically begging for a photo shoot. But just because the pattern is vivid doesn't mean you can't stand out. Opt for a brightly striped dress that matches the backdrop and neutral accessories.



Find It: 60th Street between Lexington Avenue and Park Avenue
The Upper East Side is known for its elegant atmosphere, and this wall fits right in. The classic black and white stripes were practically made for Instagram. Play up the design's polished feel in a monochromatic white look with black details.
