Two upcoming exhibits at the Museum of the City of New York will be showcasing the very best in London and New York City street photography.

"London Street Photography" will open alongside "New York Street Photography" on July 27, coinciding with the opening ceremony of the London Olympics across the pond.

The exhibit features more than 160 images dated between 1860 and 2010 and first opened at the Museum of London in 2010.

See below for a preview of photos from both cities:
