Founded in 1974, 80 Washington Square East, NYU is a not-for-profit gallery presenting contemporary and historical exhibitions. The gallery exhibits in two further locations, at Broadway Windows at Broadway and East 10th Street, and Washington Square Windows, next to the gallery.

Each spring, the gallery hosts MFA Thesis exhibitions from students of the Department of Art and Art Professions in New York University’s Steinhardt School. 80 Washington Square East resides in the historic Benedick building at Washington Square Park, originally commissioned in 1879 by iron manufacturer and Metropolitan Museum trustee, Lucius Tuckerman. The building once contained the studios of painters Winslow Homer and Albert Pinkham.
