One of the best venues in NYC for photoshoots with a model is MOMA PS1. It’s an old elementary school, repurposed as a museum. So, there are lots of opportunities here for photos, without the crowds at the large, better-known Manhattan museums. As you enter, there are large, Brutalist concrete walls, offering that kind of stark background. Inside are classrooms, long shiny wooden-floored hallways, decrepit old stairwells, and (my favorite) the boiler room. Of course, there’s an ever-changing display of artwork, which you can also incorporate.
