There's no questioning that Instagram's popularity blew up this year, but what was popular on the social-media platform in 2013? As it turns out, New York City was: The Big Apple was the most-Instagrammed metropolis in the past year, according to data shared by the company on its blog. (No surprise there—it is, after all, the greatest city in the world.)

Instagram also shared the most-photographed locations: Coming in at second place globally, after a shopping mall in Bangkok, is Times Square. We'll have to put that one on the tourists. But two beloved NYC green spaces—Central Park and High Line—also made the top-ten cut, and both of them are new additions to the list for 2013.
