The best photography gallery in NYC 

Howard Greenberg Gallery

Howard Greenberg Gallery is one, if not my most, favorite gallery in NYC. The gallery is specialized in photography, and most of the exhibit I saw here are of street photography. 

Their core is on history of modern and contemporary photography spanning from masters like Henri Cartier-Bresson, Edward Steichen, Bernice Abbott, Paul Strand, Edward Weston among others, as well as more recent artist like Walker Evans, Vivian Maier, Marvin Newman, etc.

The gallery is located at the 14th floor of the Fuller Building on 57th Street. It has a main gallery space, and one on a side for more contemporary exhibits.

Since its inception over thirty years ago, Howard Greenberg Gallery has built a vast and ever-changing collection of some of the most important photographs in the medium. The Gallery’s collection acts as a living history of photography, offering genres and styles from Pictorialism to Modernism, in addition to contemporary photography and images conceived for industry, advertising, and fashion. Maintaining diverse and extensive holdings of photographic prints, the gallery includes such masters as Eugène Atget, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Bruce Davidson, André Kertész, William Klein, Gordon Parks, Edward Steichen, Paul Strand, Josef Sudek, and Edward Weston on its roster of artists. More recent additions include Edward Burtynsky, Jungjin Lee, Joel Meyerowitz, and Vivian Maier. In 2013 Howard Greenberg Gallery announced exclusive representation for the estates of Berenice Abbott and Arnold Newman. In 2018 Howard Greenberg Gallery became the primary representative of the Ray K. Metzker Archive.

Formerly a photographer and founder of The Center for Photography in Woodstock in 1977, Howard Greenberg has been one of a small group of gallerists, curators and historians responsible for the creation and development of the modern market for photography. Howard Greenberg Gallery—founded in 1981 and originally known as Photofind—was the first to consistently exhibit photojournalism and ‘street’ photography, now accepted as important components of photographic art.

After nearly 17 years in Soho, Howard Greenberg Gallery moved to The Fuller Building, at 41 East 57th Street, in 2003. Consistent with its former downtown space, the midtown gallery reflects the need for a flexible yet intimate space where multiple exhibitions can be presented simultaneously. Features of the space include: a central gallery, secondary exhibition room, and several private viewing rooms.
