Summer NYC Celeb Sightings: Where Harry Styles, Gigi Hadid, Blake Lively and more stars are hanging


New York City is peppered with celebrities year-round -- but in the summer, they're out and about more than ever. From outdoor brunches in SoHo's hottest spots to lounging on the Southampton sand, Hollywood stars love summers in the city.

Here's the catch: They, just like the rest of us, don't want to get caught in summer tourist crowds. But while you're probably not going to spot a star in Times Square or Rockefeller Plaza -- ugh, think of the foot traffic -- it's not too hard to pinpoint more celeb-friendly areas. Thanks to Instagram and the paparazzi, we've figured out some of the most Hollywood-heavy neighborhoods in all of Manhattan. (Plus some dashes of Brooklyn, the Bronx and Long Island.)

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds went bike riding near Battery Park, Bella Hadid is often milling around East Village, and Harry Styles is getting used to his new home in TriBeCa. But the most reliable places to spot celebrities in New York City are outside TV studios like ABC, NBC and CBS. Not sure where they're located? All the details are in our slideshow below!
