Most Instagrammable places in Brooklyn


If you’re a local looking to spice up your Instagram feed, or you’re coming to Brooklyn on a trip and looking to find your most photo-ready spots, we have you covered.

Instagram the bridges

Head to DUMBO for the most glorious views of the Manhattan Bridge, which connects Brooklyn, and Manhattan. DUMBO itself is also one of Brooklyn’s most high-end and charming neighborhoods, with cobblestoned streets that will make you feel like you’ve been transported back in time. Alternatively, walk across the Brooklyn Bridge for some amazing views throughout your whole journey.

Prospect Park on your Instagram

We like to think of Prospect Park as Central Park’s cool cousin. Designed by the same landscape architect as Central Park, Prospect Park boasts many fantastic attractions. From Grand Army Plaza to the Brooklyn Library nearby, to ice skating in the winter and outdoor concerts in the summer, to the playgrounds and zoo, you can find hundreds of opportunities for photos without stepping outside of its 585 acres.

The most Instagrammable brunch in Brooklyn

Few things look better than getting some great food on your feed? Brunch is a mainstay in your NYC life, whether you’re opting for a mimosa-fueled version or a healthier take. Smorgasburg on the weekends in Williamsburg remains a great place to try all kinds of different delicacies. For a more refined, sit-down take, we love Sunday in Brooklyn. Their pancakes are the things that social media dreams are made from.

We’re excited to announce that we’ve partnered with Eric Inkala (@drinkala) to create this gorgeous mural for one of our upcoming homes! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Eric is a Bushwick based artist who’s been painting murals since 2005. He’s worked with the @thebushwickcollective for almost 3 years now, creating both public and private works in New York City and Miami. He’s also partnered with brands like @coach and @ronin_bicycles, and has created custom pieces for local New York businesses. (Now that you’ve seen this piece, you’ll start noticing his work all around NYC.) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This piece was based off a 20 x 20 inch painting he created with the Texas based cultural center, @fortworksart. “It’s crazy to make a painting that small and turn it into the entire side of a building 45 ft tall! The inspiration really just came from selecting an abstract piece that I thought was a very strong image and wanted to paint larger than life.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Check out the rest of his work @drinkala and stay tuned for more news around this home!
