A new exhibit opens Tuesday at the Museum of the City of New York.

It's by Joel Grey, the famed Broadway actor who is also a photographer. Walking the streets of New York City with Joel Grey will lead you to find things you may have never noticed, from faces to structures, and moments that capture his attention.

Grey has captured New York City through his eyes and the lenses of his Nikon from 1966 and the camera on his cell phone.

The Broadway and film star has been taking photos for 40 years. He's even published 3 books of his work and now many of his images are on display at the Museum of the City of New York.

Whether it's something as mundane as pipes or as colorful as a windowsill, he is a keen observer ,according to the museum's director, and his exhibition pays tribute to all of his talents.

Grey is starring in Anything Goes on Broadway, and he's directing the Normal Heart which will open on Broadway in 2 weeks.

His photography shows a side of his work and New York that most of us would never see. The exhibit is open until August 8th, 2011.
