6 Commercial Real Estate Instagrams to Brighten Up Your Feed
We live in a world surrounded by gorgeous buildings. Some of us wander around the city holding smartphones high, snapping photos. Unfortunately, the rest of us march on holding smartphones low, rapidly responding to emails.
Instagram first gained popularity as the app for food photography — cocktails, perfect waffles, a colorful harvest salad. Sunsets, beach scenes, and fashion photography soon followed suit. Recently, commercial real estate has also taken to social media. The visual world of the city skyline, hidden architectural gems, and new office spaces is now available all within the app.
So in case you haven't been outside yet today, we're bringing the great real estate of New York to your computer with some of our favorite real estate Instagram accounts with great photos. Follow them, and enjoy!
