It’s best known as the setting of Irving’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, so naturally, October is the best time to visit! Since peak foliage starts earlier in the Hudson Valley than NYC, you’ll get a chance to appreciate all the colors.

They also have festivals and events that celebrate Halloween and the fall season. Don’t miss the Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze with over 7,000 hand-carved pumpkins.

We really wanted to go while we lived in NYC, but we planned too late, and tickets sold out before we knew it. In other words, get them ASAP.

This is easily one of the most popular photography spots in NYC even long before Instagram.  When we had our wedding photography biz, we saw so many engagement sessions shot here.

In case you were wondering, DUMBO is a neighborhood of Brooklyn and stands for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass. There are a few more photo spots in this area, so give yourself some time to explore the area.

Local Tip: This is a functioning street so be sure to watch out for traffic. New Yorkers do not like to be inconvenienced, though I think people in Brooklyn are a little more laid back than in the city.
