Gantry Plaza

Gantry Plaza, located in Long Island City, Queens, is indeed a popular photo spot for photoshoots in New York City. Here are five reasons why it is a sought-after location for photography:

1.) Iconic Manhattan Skyline Views: Gantry Plaza offers one of the most breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline. From this vantage point, the iconic cityscape featuring landmarks like the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, and One World Trade Center can be right in your background. The juxtaposition of the skyline against the East River creates a stunning backdrop for photoshoots, especially during sunset or at night when the city lights illuminate the skyline.

2.) Gantry Plaza State Park: Gantry Plaza is home to Gantry Plaza State Park, a waterfront park that provides a picturesque setting for photography. The park features beautifully landscaped gardens, manicured lawns, and waterfront promenades. The well-maintained pathways, piers, and benches offer various compositions and perspectives for capturing images, whether it’s a portrait, landscape, or candid shot.

3.) Historic Industrial Structures: Gantry Plaza showcases remnants of its industrial past, with old gantry cranes standing as historic structures along the waterfront. These towering metal structures, once used for loading and unloading cargo from ships, add a unique and industrial aesthetic to your photos. The contrast between the old cranes and the modern skyline creates an interesting visual element.

4.) Waterfront Promenades and Piers: Gantry Plaza features several waterfront promenades and piers that jut out into the East River. These provide fantastic opportunities for capturing images with the river as a backdrop. The various viewpoints along the promenades offer a diverse range of compositions.

5.) Vibrant Sunsets: Gantry Plaza is known for its spectacular sunset views. As the sun dips below the Manhattan skyline, the sky often transforms into a vivid display of colors, ranging from warm oranges and pinks to deep purples and blues. This natural beauty, combined with the urban landscape, creates a captivating backdrop for photoshoots and allows the photographer to capture stunning sunset shots with you in the middle.
