Nolita Museums and Galleries
International Center of Photography Museum
250 Bowery, Nolita
The International Center of Photography's new Bowery museum is a beautiful dedication to photography and visual culture. With state-of-the-art galleries (its white walls are populated with framed works, tablets, and electronic screens alike), 90-feet of glass frontage, and abundant metal, the space is altogether much more inviting than it sounds—optional tours encourage discussion, and the main space is meant to simulate the feel of a village square. Conveniently, it's across the street from The New Museum.
