    Very hypocritical that im told I can't take photographs while looking at a photo of someone taking a photo of people watching a photo in a museum. The irony of this moment was golden.

    As you enter the museum, enlarged photographs hang in the windows, distinguishing the building from its plain office-building neighbors. If photography is your genre of choice, this place has it all.

  • Alayna D.

    This place may be one of my fav spots in NYC. They have great exhibits! The book store has great stuff and you can order anything on-line you see in there.

    The venue is always rotating out obscure and well known artists. I could linger all day, even though it is a small venue

    It's not a museum, but instead an art gallery full of photojournalistic exhibitions of photographers around the world. Would go again!

    You can't take pictures of the pictures... but you can take pictures of the captions, look the photos up on Google, and take pictures of your screen.

    The Caio Reisewitz exhibition is really well curated. Well worth a visit.

    If you like pretentious photography then this is the place for you. What's even more annoying than the majority of uninspiring photography is the ridiculous texts that describe the work.

    Too far from being an "international" center of photography. Small collection. Simply disappointed. It's just a tiny gallery not even a museum.

    A really good photography gallery where you'd least expect to find one.

    Not a big space, but the exhibits are really well curated. A wonderful place to go for a photog pick-me-up or a revive.
