New York at Night: Photographs from the Collection celebrates the great ongoing tradition of photography in and of New York City. The exhibition comprises over twenty-five photographs from the Museum’s collection that capture nightlife in the city that never sleeps. The glittering lights of the skyline and the legendary parties at El Morocco and Studio 54 are among the subjects that inspired great photographers from Berenice Abbott to Garry Winogrand. Also included are works by Diane Arbus, Rudy Burckhardt, Lee Friedlander, Alfred Stieglitz, and others.

Organized by the Department of Photography.
