Yes, while this may seem a bit of a contradiction, we feel that the neighborhood itself and the many buildings not dedicated to a large cultural institution are also deserving of love, recognizing that this neighborhood of New York is blessed in rich architecture and photo opportunities galore.

Solomon R Guggenheim Museum

This building’s striking exterior is a great subject for those cityscape photographers, and yet another way for visitors to mark their stay in the neighborhood with a highly recognisable building.
