Action-Like Areas in NYC?

(man, I am horrible at coming up with titles)

Hallo guys !

I am looking for a few places that would be good for action like shots for animes like Naruto, Black Butler and Yugioh in the NYC area.

I know Jacob Javits might be a good place for a Yugioh Photoshoot but I am unsure about the others.
Central Park is a bit too crowded for my taste (I am kind of shy when going out in cosplay when its not for a convention or Japan Day, 'specially in my Orochimaru cosplay then there are those people that just stare...) so I was wondering if any one knows about any places that would provide a nice background for Naruto, Black Butler, or Yugioh (that are not really that crowded).

Thank you for all of your help!

I would be willing to travel upstate maybe, but I would only do that if it is absolutely necessary.
And if anyone knows about any places that would let people up on roofs or something would be nice too.

Any ideas?

If you're looking for a place in the city, most of the time, you might just have to walk around to find something.

There ARE some days in Central Park/some areas that aren't too crowded.

It all just depends on what day it is and where/how long you're willing to walk around.

Like hikaru2322 said, you can probably just walk around & find great places.
If Central Park isn't your thing than you can always go to Prospect Park. There are some really nice places there for photoshoots, and they're usually not crowded.
The botanical garden has some nice places too, especially during sakura season, so you could probably go there during Sakura Matsuri~

But where/what streets should I be walking around in? I don't mind walking around in cosplay when I am with a group of people but I really don't want people to start thinking that I am strange or whatever if I am walking about in front of a church with a large buttbow hitting everyone (unwillingly, of course) xD;

OO! I'll check out Prospect Park and see who would like to join me to go there. I never personally been there myself so Idk.
Neither have I been to the botanical garden :0

The area and walkway around the Intrepid is a good spot for that. Perhaps some areas in South Street Seaport as well. I also find that Central Park has some great locations especially near the lakes.

Socrates Sculpture Park (in Astoria, take the N/Q to Broadway), Astoria Park, The Highline, Coney Island (especially around this time, it's pretty dead in the off season)

Cherry Hill is a gorgeous spot in Central Park and usually isn't that crowded. The Waldorf Astoria lobby would be nice for some Black Butler photos, not sure what their policy on pics is tho.

Fort Tryon Park in Washington Heights has some great locations as well

You would think that they would allow people to just waltz right in and take photos at Columbia? That place is just amazing ; 3 ;.

Ward's Island? I never heard of a place like that. :0

And where in China town are you talking about? ;o
