This is the "Love" statue by Robert Indiana on Sixth Avenue at 55th Street in Manhattan. It seems to be a popular spot for photography. This woman was photographing some sort of figure in front of it. Here is some information from Wikipedia about the statue.
"Indiana's best known image is the word "LOVE" in a square with a tilted "O". This image, first created for a Christmas card for the Museum of Modern Art in 1964, was included on an 8 cent U.S. Postal Service stamp in 1973, the first of their regular series of "love stamps." Sculpture versions are on display at Sixth Avenue in New York, the Pratt Institue campus in Brooklyn, the Indianapolis Museum of Art and in the so called "Love Park" in Philadelphia, among others.
