Annie Leibovitz is one of our favorite New Yorkers. Did we ever tell you she once took our photograph (many film rolls’ worth of photographs, actually)? No? Well, you can read all about it in the story we wrote for Salon.com at the time.
Anyway, we read with avid interest Time Out New York‘s interview with Annie, Why I Love NYC, and it came as no surprise whatsoever that we’re big fans of all six of the sites she cites (well, five out of six—we never had the pleasure of visiting Margaret Bourke-White’s studio on the 61st floor of the Chrysler Building, but we are perfectly willing to take Annie’s word for it that seeing it was an amazing experience).
If you’re traveling to NYC, you could certainly do worse than to visit the five places Annie mentions in the interview. I mean, who wouldn’t want Annie Leibovitz for a tour guide?
