Best Locations for Photo Shoots?

Here are the proposals so far. Any other ones?

* Weehawken/Edgewater, NJ (near Port Imperial): several locations along the Hudson river with the Manhattan skyline in the background

* Liberty State Park, NJ: Miss Liberty in the Background

* Princeton, NJ: several locations with Gothic churches, university, etc...

* Bear Mountain, NY: during the foliage season

* Douglaston Plaza at Sunset

* Brooklyn... Queens... Bronx... put the beautiful machine in front of an ethnic b.g., that's colourful

* Hunts Points after hours: a couple of urban spots

Well, from Manhattan, you take the Holland Tunnel.
And then drive to the bus terminal, where the ferry to Ellis Island and SoL leaves.

Queens, you probably need to get through Manhattan, I am afraid...

for Queens just come over the Queensboro/59th street bridge head towards the Holland Tunnel take 78W to exit 14B, when you pay the toll you'll see a small sign for Liberty State Park

or in your Nav look up Parks in Jersey City and find Liberty State Park follow the nav...

Ok, time for some "appetizers" (see below). I will have to go back with my buddy when there will be some wilder colors over the Big Apple.

Yeah, I agree. For the others, my friend arrived a little late (got stuck in the Holland tunnel coming from Brooklyn) so it was getting dark fast. Will have to do this again during daylight + when the baby is clean (and without the E-ZPass )!
