City Lore Gallery

56 E. 1st St.
Manhattan, NY 10003

East Village


City Lore Gallery is a cultural hub that celebrates New York City's vibrant cultural atmosphere and provides a platform for the myriad voices that comprise the City. The gallery presents exhibitions and events on all the things that make New York "New York." From the golden age of graffiti, to endangered languages and activist comics, City Lore finds the art in everyday life. City Lore works in four cultural domains—urban folklore and history, preservation, arts education and grassroots poetry traditions—and is committed to the principles of cultural equity and democracy.
