About Us



Located in the historic SoHo neighborhood, the Leica Store New York is at the heart of New York’s creative pulse. The neighborhood of Warhol, Basquiat, and Haring has long been the home of the biggest figures in the world of Photography. In that spirit, the Leica Store often champions the work of local photographers in our Gallery, showing both established and new artists. Our full retail space is staffed by knowledgeable personnel with decades of experience at shooting, selling, and handling cameras.

With long roots in the history of Leica products and practices, the Leica Store New York SoHo is a must visit location for local or visiting shutterbugs looking for a little photography advice, or for a hands on experience with all new Leica gear. Visit often to check on our ever-rotating case of used and collectible equipment, fashionable accessories, and our collection of photo books.

Whether you’re in the market for a camera, want to admire great art, or are attending a Leica Akadamie workshop, the Leica Store New York SoHo is the perfect destination for all photographers.



SoHo is literally in the center of the downtown area. Foodies will delight in the choice of hundreds of local restaurants from any cuisine they desire. Within a 5-10 minute walk is Little Italy, Chinatown, TriBeca, and Greenwich Village.

The photo opportunities in the area are endless. Legendary street photographers have often used the cobblestone streets and sidewalk cafes of downtown Manhattan as their muse. For as long as there have been Leica cameras, downtown Manhattan has been a destination for street photography. If people-watching is what you seek, several world famous parks like Washington Square, Union Square, and the Highline are just minutes away. If you like historic landmarks, famous bridges, noteworthy architecture, we’ve got it. From the sidewalk outside our store you can spot the Freedom Tower downtown and the Empire State Building uptown. And if that isn’t enough, walk along the waterfront and see New York Harbor, Ellis Island, and the Statue of Liberty, all a short distance away.
