On Saturday, September 19, NewYork.com (@NewYorkcom) and @WhyILoveNewYorkCity will host a citywide 5 Borough Instagram Meet, one of the largest InstaMeets in New York City history, complete with photo challenges, prizes for the best photos and an after party!

Not familiar with the concept of an InstaMeet?

InstaMeet events happen globally where Instagrammers meet each other, share photography advice and create content together to post on their personal feeds. The goal is to gather excited Instagrammers to meet one another and of course find an excuse to get out and explore someplace new!

The 5 Borough InstaMeet is divided into a total of eight teams — two in Manhattan, two in Queens, two in Brooklyn, one in the Bronx and one in Staten Island. Each team is captained by some of New York’s top Instagram influencers, including: @denn_ice- (67.2K), @skinnywashere (62K), @Xtramoney (38.2K), @erickhercules (37.3K), and more.

The event is open to the public and anyone can sign up via Eventbrite. They’ll be prompted to choose a team that either represents the borough they live in, or they can choose an area they don’t know very well using this as an opportunity to explore a new side of NYC.

Please let us know if you are interested in participating and/or can share this event with your readers so they can prep their IPhone/Android for a day of snaps!
