WestHouse Hotel Review



WestHouse Hotel was great, couldn't have been happier with my choice. I would & will stay here again. Apart from the great location which is within walking distance to times square or central park, the staff were professional, warm and welcoming. Large rooms, the room was very comfortable and larger than we were expecting and the downstairs lounge was a great place to catch our breath over a coffee, wine or beer before setting out again or to finish the evening. I can tell you the hotel staff at the WestHouse Hotel is the best I've ever experienced in New York. Just wonderful!

Will Boisture about this video: "New York City has been my home for seven years and as a filmmaker and photographer I can’t help but be in awe of the vibrancy and beauty of this place . I wanted to create a work that captures and conveys my love for it. This video is something that I have been working to create for two and a half years. As a freelancer, I shot this film in the little windows of time between work, looking for my next job, and getting engaged and married. I’ve shown some of these shots to friends along the way, but this single, unified piece has always been the focus of my filming and I’m very happy to present it now. I want to thank two people who made this possible; first, my wife Pooja for putting up with my need to shoot sunrises and late-night shots when she’d really rather I didn’t and being my best critic, biggest fan, and muse. And secondly, my awesome friend and collaborator Brandon Bailey who was there from the very first shoot with advice, support and enthusiasm. Thanks for everything!"

Citifari (www.citifari.com) offers photo tours of New York City. We found that it is often complicated to find original spots for people to get the right composition in their picture at the right time of the day.

They have scouted the city for these spots and times and are organizing them into photo tours. They offer 4 different photo tours:



  • A landmarks tour in midtown (http://www.citifari.com/landmark-photo-tour.htm),
  • A tour of Central Park (http://www.citifari.com/central-park-photo-tour.htm)
  • A night tour (http://www.citifari.com/nightphototour.htm)
  • And, since the last season, a SOHO tour (http://www.citifari.com/soho-photo-tour.htm)

    Both local and tourist photo-enthusiasts go to citifari to learn about their cameras, get the feedback from professional photographers and capture amazing pictures. Citifari’s guides are prepared to help anyone get up to speed with the basics of photography and to get comfortable with the manual mode of their camera.

    The tricky part with pictures in NYC is that the sun has to be hitting at the right place at the right time as there is a high probability for it to be just behind a building when you were just about to take your shot. New York is a very photogenic city and there are endless possibilities for pictures. A wide angle lens is often useful as the buildings are so tall and there is little room for stepping back and capture them. Also panoramas are great, and a good spot to get a panorama is the top of the Rock at Rockefeller Center rather than the obvious Empire State Building. Top of the Rock allows you to actually see the Empire, and, as a bonus, you will skip the long lines. For skyline shots, go either to Hoboken or Jersey City for sunrise views or Dumbo, Long Island City at sunset. The bridges also look amazing from that point of view at night.

  • Citifari (www.citifari.com) ofrece photo tours en Nueva York. Hace tiempo que notamos que los visitantes adoran las fotos de Nueva York, pero que no siempre es fácil tomar la mejor instantánea de ella.

    Para esto, ellos han recorrido la ciudad buscando las mejores localizaciones y momentos, y los han organizado en tours.

    Los tours son preparados para ayudar y enseñar a cualquiera, para que en poco tiempo aprendan las técnicas básicas de fotografía y hacer que se sientan cómodos con la cámara en la mano.

    El truco de las fotos en Nueva York, según Citifari, es encontrar al sol golpeando el lugar preciso en cada momento, a veces delante, a veces escondido tras otro edificio.

    Nueva York es una ciudad increíblemente fotogénica, con un sinfín de posibilidades para el arte de la fotografía. Una lente de tipo "gran angular" suele ser muy util para obtener lo mejor de los rascacielos. Las panorámicas son geniales aquí, por ejemplo usando el Top of the Rocks para fotografiar al Empire State Building. Para fotos del "skyline" lo mejor es hacerlas desde Hoboken, Jersey City o DUMBO, para puestas de sol, Long Island City.
