Tagged as subjective since 'best spot' depends highly on what you want to photograph (street/urban/architecture). – Marc Jul 17 '10 at 10:18
Questions that ask users to create a list of answers (i.e. polls or list-of-X questions), while there not exactly the type of questions this system was designed for, at the very least need to be made community wiki. I converted this question. – Robert Cartaino Jul 17 '10 at 15:54

I recommend taking a trip over to Brooklyn via the Brooklyn bridge and going down to the river side. Some classic shots of both the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridge can be got, particularly at sunrise / sunset.

I really enjoyed the city view from the NBC building's observation deck.

Soho, chinatown. Check for more ideas

It's probably rather cliché, but you really can get some amazing photographs just walking around Times Square at night. Also, when I was there a few weeks ago, I noticed that if you go late enough (after 1:30 AM, say), there will still be people present, but the crowd will have thinned quite a bit. Whether this is useful or not depends on just what sort of photos you want, of course.

I think the streets of Soho and Chinatown offer some of the best spots to take pictures in New York. I also agree with the Brooklyn Bridge recommendation. Check for more suggestions
