Above is a photograph by Charles H. Traub of an elderly lady exploring the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The image is part of a larger collection of New York City photographs on view through six galleries in the City. Ken Johnson has reviewed the assembled works, in each of the spaces, in today’s NYT offering not just a critical rundown of the work, but also a useful tour for those wishing to hit the galleries.

After the jump some favorite images including Margaret Bourke-White’s Statue of Liberty, and Andrew Moore view of Times Square from 2002.
