Photos: Serena Williams hangs in Manhattan, J. Lo poses with NYC street art

Celebs like Hillary Duff, Usher, Rita Ora, and Ariana Grande posted photos of themselves enjoying their stay in the city

Celebrities in New York City are not an uncommon phenomenon. Whether it’s for work or pure enjoyment, actors, singers, athletes, models, and the like are bound to be floating around NYC.

Though spotting your favorite celeb can almost be like a sport within itself, rest assured in knowing that they love this city just as much as you do.

This week has seen Hillary Duff hanging out at the Museum of Ice Cream, Usher running across the Brooklyn Bridge, and Lala Anthony hanging out in Williamsburg.

Tennis superstar Serena Williams is hanging out somewhere in Manhattan. Though we’re not sure where exactly, we’re guessing it’s somewhere in Lower Manhattan near the Nikelab that she’s partnered up with.

Former Disney star Hillary Duff had a blast at the sold-out Museum of Ice Cream. How’d she manage to get tickets?!

So maybe Usher didn’t run over the Brooklyn Bridge this past week given his choice of apparel compared to the scorching heat New York City’s been getting lately but he did head there while training and filming for his role in Hands of Stone.

Jennifer Lopez, a.k.a J.Lo, poses near one of the city’s many "Protect Yo Heart" sidewalk spray paintings while on set for New York City-based television series Shades of Blue.

Lala Anthony, wife of Knicks star and three-time Olympic gold medalist Carmelo Anthony, hangs out with friends not too far from the William Vale Hotel in Williamsburg (that’s it in the background on the left).

Celebrating the bday girl @pojohnson nothing like a good Brooklyn rooftop. @kodaklens

Rita Ora spent some time in Soho before bidding farewell to NYC. The singer/actress had been in the city for some time filming for the newest season of America’s Next Top Model. The neighbors of that Upper West Side townhouse are probably glad to see her and the crew go.

Singer Ariana Grande strikes a pose on an unknown NYC rooftop. Looks like we aren’t the only ones that love a good rooftop spot.
