We spent some time trying to find this museum, only to discover that it is closed, due to moving locations and will not reopen until the fall, at the earliest. So no need to go and try to see this now!

This a lovely, small gallery. Exhibit space is easy to navigate and friendly for looking at photos. Coffee shop in entranceway is excellent as well, with excellent coffee and food.

Went for an photobook release event and then to see the Lauren Greenberg exhibit. The fees are reasonable, the facilities are clean (even if a bit utilitarian), the cafe has a nice selection. A nice, intimate space for people who love photography!

I have been a member of the ICP for years, and when it moved to the Bowery, I wasn't sure it would maintain its high standards. It does. The most recent visit was to view Bresson's work. The gift shop is progressing which I was...More

Lauren Greenfield's Queen of Versailles was a very interesting spotlight on the materialism in our society. I look forward to going back to see another exhibit.

Very interesting exhibition 'Incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II', till May 6th 2018. We also browsed through the photo collection of Magnum photographers, you can browse by name, subject etc, impressive.

Really great museum. At the moment (End of April) you can see an exhibition about immigration. Great art works from D. Lange, A. Adams and others. Really worth to visit if you are interested in photography.

Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita
maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant
retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for
“North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to
be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighborhood is
popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of
the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry,
Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping,
