The urban experience is an ever-changing tableau of daily activity. For young and old, work, relaxation, and play unfold on the city’s streets, revealing an anonymous humanity engaged in endeavors familiar to all. Selected from the Museum’s Permanent Collection, this exhibition is a portrait of New York City–its work-a-day life, shopping avenues, and iconic transportation system. Featured artists include Berenice Abbott, N. Jay Jaffee, Martin Lewis, Don Perlis, John Sloan, Garry Winogrand, and others.
