One of the most photographed spots in New York is that corner of 10th & Stuyvesant streets in the East Village neighborhood of Manhattan. According to NYC Tourist Information Center, the houses that span the south side of 10th Street from No. 114 to 128 and those at Nos. 23–35 on Stuyvesant Street form what's known as Renwick Triangle, a group of houses designed by the noted 19th century NYC architect James Renwick Jr. 'This uniquely-shaped corner building is a classic spot. The vine-covered building, stone exterior and blooming foliage makes for a picturesque setting in a quiet neighborhood,' says Sam Horine, a New York photographer. The closest subway station is Astor Place, 6 Trains, then head north on Lafayette St., continue on 4th Ave, turn right on East 10th St. and the corner will be on your right.
