New York is dotted with waterfalls that are lovely (and highly Insta-worthy) any time of year. But there’s something extra special about these natural wonders in winter. The frozen water and mist look truly spectacular—​even with #nofilter—​and there are fewer folks competing with you for the perfect shot. Here are just a few of New York’s most picturesque waterfalls that will be putting on quite a show for the next few months. Now get out there and start taking your own pics—​and don’t forget to share your shots with us using #iSpyNY and #NYLovesWinter! Remember to social distance and wear a mask as required by state guidelines. Call ahead and check websites and social media to make sure attractions are open and available. Be advised that New York has a travel advisory in effect.
