    As a photographer this is always a stop when I'm in NYC. The work is always amazing and I always walk Away inspired in my own work to do better.

    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.

    Nul. Art cliché/stéréotypée.

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

    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.

    The cafe downstairs offers a selection of photobooks, mostly self-published, to peruse at leisure.

    Nice place but not worth 14$ ! Come on Friday 5-8pm & pay as u want.

    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.

    I really like this place. I highly recommend it. Great pictures, cool store(where they sell Lomography cameras) and if you have a student ID you get in for 10 dollars.

    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.

    This center is often overlooked by visitors, though their excellent photography exhibits. When visiting Times Square, head over to 6th avenue and check it out. Read more
