New York Tops Most Photographed Cities In The World; Apple Store Is 28th Most Photographed Landmark (PHOTOS)

First Posted: 05/26/10 06:12 AM ET   Updated: 05/25/11 05:00 PM ET

A new study has named New York the most photographed city in the world.

Using a supercomputer to analyze over 35 million Flickr photos by more than 300,000 photographers, researchers at Cornell University not only determined the top 25 most photographed cities, but their top landmarks as well.

While many of the places photographed are to be expected (the Empire State Building, the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben, etc), some of the results are quite surprising. Who'd have thought that the Apple store in Manhattan would be the 28th most photographed landmark in the world?

Check out the slideshow below to see which other cities made the list!
