Capturing the George Washington Bridge from Fort Lee Historic Park

There's lots to photograph!

A lot of photographers will take bridge photos and photos of the architecture, but some people don’t realize how great of a birding spot this is, too.

With the cliffs of the Palisades, several different types of birds of prey live in this area. So be sure to grab your zoom lens, tripod, and a lot of patience to check out some of the fantastic species in this area.

Go for a hike, too

There are also some great hiking trails along this area for all levels of hiking. Whether you are a beginner or looking for a more extreme climb, there are plenty of opportunities to do everything.

Once a place for an NJspots meet up, this spot is excellent for hanging out with friends, family, and other photographers. All times during the day are great for capturing the NYC skyline. It’s also a great place to have a long exposure photo set up of the tail lights crossing the bridge
