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.

ICP is a misnomer. This is a remarkably uninspiring venue and should not use that name. The Generation Wealth exhibit which purports to be about affluence is more about individual needs and narcissism and the consequent response in a social context. Much is made of...More

My second visit to this museum. Current exhibit of Lauren Greenfield's "Generation Wealth" is inspiring and thought-provoking. Wonderful photography beautifully presented. Glad I came back to this museum.

Current exhibit is of works produced by the Magnum photo agency. The exhibit was very high quality. The museum is small so it isn't overwhelming. A couple of hours will be well spent.

I went there on a pay-what-you-wish Thursday night. There weren't people, which was good. I wish I got there earlier. The center may appear to be small but I didn't get to savor all the pieces when they closed it. The visit was kind of...More

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 neighbourhood 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,
