The Big Apple is the world’s most photogenic city — according to Instagram users.

New York City topped a list of the app’s most photographed cities worldwide in 2013.

Los Angeles, San Diego, Las Vegas and San Francisco also made the top 10. But the app’s blog notes that 60 percent of Instagram photos and videos are posted outside of the U.S., apparently mostly in Bangkok, London, Sao Paolo, Moscow and Rio de Janiero.

Three of New York City’s biggest attractions also made the most Instagrammed hotspots list. Times Square came in second, while Central Park ranked sixth and the relatively new High Line 10th.
