Best art walks in NYC

Lower East Side Bowery

1.  Lower East Side Bowery

New York City has gone through huge changes in the past several decades, nowhere more so, perhaps, than on the fabled Bowery. Just a generation ago, it was Manhattan’s Skid Row; today, it’s home to pricey condo towers and art venues that include two major museums.

For this tour, take the B, D to Grand Street and walk one block west to the corner of Bowery, where you’ll find Simone Subal Gallery ( 131 Bowery, 917-409-0612, ). This second-floor space specializes in emerging and mid-career artists, many of them from Europe. Expect conceptual-oriented work with a refined aesthetic vibe.

Next, head north three blocks north until you reach Andrew Edlin Gallery ( 212 Bowery, 212-206-9723, ), one of New York’s premier showcases for Outsider and Visionary art. Walk one more block in the same direction until you arrive at the New Museum ( 235 Bowery, 212-219-1222, ), the most cutting edge museum of contemporary art in the city. It boasts a ground floor project space, three main gallery levels, a theater, a café and roof terraces.

Head down the street, where you’ll find Sperone Westwater ( 257 Bowery, 212-999-7337, ) , which originally opened in Soho in 1975. Today, it sits in an eight-story, purpose-built showcase designed by starchitects Foster + Partners. One innovative feature of the place: a moving exhibition hall—actually a 12-by-20-by-13-foot elevator that can be connected to any one of the floors to extend the viewing space.

Finally, keep heading north until you’re above Houston to check out The Hole ( 312 Bowery, 212-466-1100, ), a scrappy gallery that often goes for funky and outré work.

Lower East Side Grand Street

2.  Lower East Side Grand Street

If you’re looking for galleries with a funkier, edgier vibe, look no further than the spaces on the Lower East Side specializing in young and emerging artists. Grand Street is one of the scene’s major thoroughfares with many of the area’s must-see galleries. Take the B, D to Grand Street, and start heading east.

Your first stop is 291 Grand St at the corner of Eldridge Street, a multi-story building that houses several cutting-edge galleries. Among you’ll find 47 Canal ( 646-415-7712, ), a leading showcase of smart, risk-taking work, and the  Nathalie Karg Gallery  ( 212-563-7821, ) which specializes in veteran artists.

Keep heading east and drop by Marc Strauss Gallery  ( 299 Grand St between between Eldridge and Allen Streets, 212-510-7646, ) and Shin Gallery ( 322 Grand Street, 212-375-1735, ), both of which serve up a solid menu of contemporary art.

Chelsea West 21st Street

3.  Chelsea West 21st Street

Chelsea’s row of galleries along West 21st Street between Tenth and Eleventh includes some of the most respected names in the NYC gallery world. To get there, hop the C, E to 23rd Street and head west to Tenth Avenue, before turning south to 21st Street.

Start with Tanya Bonakdar Gallery ( 521 W 21st St, 212-414-4144, ) a elegant, bi-level Chelsea space   that has included previous powerhouse names on its roster like Uta Barth, Ernesto Neto and New York City Waterfalls maestro Olafur Eliasson.

Head a few doors in the direction of Eleventh Avenue to find Paula Cooper Gallery ( 521, 529 West 21st, ). One of the original galleries to open in Soho (1969!) and later in Chelsea, Cooper has built an impressive art temple. (She has also has a second space, across the street.) The gallery is known for Minimalist and Conceptual work by artists that has included Christian Marclay, Carl Andre, Walid Raad and Bing Wright.

Next, stop into Gladstone Gallery  ( 530 W 21st St, 212-206-7606, ), a cavernous skylighted space that is strictly blue-chip. The gallery represents such Conceptualist and daring talents as   Robert Bechtle, Latoya Ruby Frazier, Rachel Rose and Anish Kapoor.

Finally, as you near Eleventh Avenue, you’ll come across 303 Gallery ( 555 W 21st St, 212-255-1121, ). A mainstay of Chelsea (and before that the Soho and East Village scenes of the late 1980s and early 1990s), 303 gallery got its start in the Park Avenue South apartment of principal Lisa Spellman (hence the name; it’s her old address). Over the years, 303 has fostered the careers of critically acclaimed artists working in a variety of media —among them Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Esteban Jefferson, Sam Falls and Kim Gordon. 

Chelsea West 24th Street

4.  Chelsea West 24th Street

The block of West 24th Street between Tenth and Eleventh Avenues in Chelsea is the main drag for gallery-hopping, featuring a murderers row of New York’s biggest venues. Hop the C, E to 23rd Street and head west to Tenth Avenue, before turning north to 24th Street.

Start with Marianne Boesky ( 507–509 W 24th St, 212-680-9889, ), where you’ll find an eclectic roster of talent that self-taught artist Jammie Holmes and mixed-media artist Ghada Amer.

Keep heading west until you get to the middle of the block where big-name galleries Lisson Gallery  (504 West 24th St, 212-505-6431, )  and Luhring Augustine ( 531 W 24th St, 212-206-9100, ) stand cheek-by-jowl.

Wrap up your tour at the end of the block with that gigantic Chelsea staple, Gagosian Gallery ( 555 W 24th St, 212-741-1717, ), home to such art-world major-leaguers  as Damien Hirst and Theaster Gates.


5.  Midtown

This midtown corridor has an art scene for a lot longer than Chelsea and the Lower East Side, and the galleries here are among New York’s most venerable, offering exhibits of Modern and contemporary art that are well worth a trip. To get started, hop off the F at 57th Street and begin walking east.

First up: Marian Goodman Gallery ( 24 W 57th Street between Fifth Ave and Sixth Avenues, 212-977-7160, ), which represents some of the biggest artists in the world —among them, the Italian sculptor Giuseppe Penone .

Then, keep heading south to 55th St between Fifth and Madison Aves where you'll find Anton Kern Gallery (pictured; 16 E 55th St, 212-367-9663, ), a contemporary space helmed by the son of artist Georg Baselitz. Kern represents youngish and midcareer artists, including  Ellen Berkenblit, Nicole Eisenman, Mark Grotjahn and Jonas Wood among others.

Fifth Ave/Museum Mile

6.  Fifth Ave/Museum Mile

Museum mile is named for the stretch of Fifth Avenue between 82nd and 105th Streets that serves as the home for seven iconic New York institutions: The Metropolitan Museum Of Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Neue Galerie New York, The Jewish Museum, Cooper Hewitt, National Design Museum, the Museum Of The City Of New York and El Museo Del Barrio. It’s a lot to take in, but do try to visit them all.

First, take the 4, 5, 6 to 86th St and start with The Metropolitan Museum of Art ( 1000 Fifth Ave, 212-535-7710, ) on 82nd a Fifth. One of the biggest museums in the world, The Met displays art from pre-history all the way up to today.

Next, head up to Neue Galerie New York ( 1048 Fifth Ave, 212-628-6200, ), which is devoted entirely to late-19th- and early-20th-century German and Austrian fine and decorative arts.   Gustav Klimt’s iconic portrait, Adele Bloch-Bauer I .

Keep heading north to the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (pictured; 1071 Fifth Ave, 212-423-3500, ), which of course was famously designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The spiraling rotunda he created for its interior is a must-see.

Speaking of design, make sure to check out the Cooper Hewitt ( 2 E 91st St, 212-849-8400, ), which is dedicated to design (both historic and modern), and is the only Smithsonian Museum in NYC.

Next stop: The Jewish Museum ( 1109 Fifth Ave, 212-423-3200, ), which, in addition to celebrating Jewish culture, mounts important exhibitions of modern and contemporary art.

As its name suggests, the Museum Of The City Of New York ( 1220 Fifth Ave, 212-534-1672, ), isn’t an art museum per se. Rather it’s focused on Gotham and its history. But it’s worth a visit because its exhibitions often include examples of fine art and photography.

Your final destination is El Museo Del Barrio ( 1230 Fifth Ave, 212-831-7272, ), which showcases the work of Latino artists from the U.S. and Latin America.

Upper East Side Madison Avenue

7.  Upper East Side Madison Avenue

The Upper East Side is New York’s oldest gallery neighborhood and its charms are many. The spaces are usually located in elegant townhouses built at a time when being rich didn’t mean having to show off. Hence the rooms are intimately scaled, permitting you to get close up and personal with the work in a way that makes you feel like you are living with it. Quality and chic are the operative terms here. Most of the galleries are located in the East Sixties and Seventies just off Madison Avenue in either direction.

To start, take the 6 to Hunter College–68th Street and head to Petzel Gallery (pictured; 35 E 67th Street between Madison and Park Avenues, 212-680-9467, ), the uptown branch of long-time Chelsea dealer who reps such well regarded contemporary figures l ike Yael Bartana, Joyce Pensato and Malcolm Morley . Next, head north to Hauser & Wirth ( 32 E 69th Street, between Madison and Park Avenues, 212-794-4970, ), the powerhouse Swiss dealer who also has a space in Chelsea. And while you're at it, next door you'll find the UES outpost of another big Chelsea player, David Zwirner ( 34 East 69th Street, 212-201-0240, ).

Your next stop is Michael Werner Gallery ( 4 E 77th Street between Fifth and Madison Avenues, 212-988-1623, ), which in the past has exhibited works from artists Peter Doig, Sigmar Polke and Peter Saul.

Your tour ends with that most Upper East Side-ish of Upper East Side spaces, Acquavella Galleries ( 18 E 79th Street between Fifth and Madison Avenues, 212-734-6300, ). A family owned concern since the 1920s, Acquavella trades mainly in 19th and 20th-century heavyweights (Degas, Pissaro, Picasso, Bacon), but there are some contemporary artists (Miquel Barceló, Damien Loeb) surprisingly sprinkled into the mix. Every visit is a true New York art-viewing experience.

For the high-tech art lover looking for a unique experience, this gallery tour of Chelsea has got you covered. David, who runs the tour, commissioned audio equipment used in museums and Broadway shows to turn his tour into an audio-visual experience. Tour-takers wear earbuds that allow them to hear David’s commentary anywhere within the gallery, releasing them from needing to congregate around the guide or having to strain to hear explanations…even adding a little spy-esque feel to the whole thing. The tour route features the top five galleries chosen from a selection of around 200 that David personally visits each month (hence the name of the tour).

Lauren A. Kaplan Tours

Lauren A. Kaplan Tours

This customizable tour of client-picked museums, galleries and exhibits is a hybrid of what Lauren (an art historian and museum educator) calls the ‘lecture’ method of tours: giving you facts about that art with a more interactive ‘inquiry’ method, which consists of asking questions to promote discussion while also blending in a variety of historical context and true stories about the artists themselves. Short activities such as sketching and other games often feature into the experience as well. Popular requested tours include highlights or themed tours of the Metropolitan Museum, Chelsea gallery tours and tours of lower Manhattan’s iconic architecture.

Gotham SideWalks

Gotham SideWalks

In New York City, popularly nicknamed ‘Gotham’, street art has always been juxtaposed against the fine art housed in galleries, but the lines are blurring more than ever between the two. This tour takes you through the best of both on Manhattan’s Lower East Side , where an ever-changing street art scene and galleries coexist and influence one another. Rich, who runs the tour, has taught art for ten years and is a collage artist himself. A self-described tour ‘curator’ rather than ‘guide’, Rich involves the neighborhood art community to make the tour authentic. Count on him to invite the artists and gallery owners themselves to do the talking.

NYC Subway Art Tour

NYC Subway Art Tour

This subterranean tour takes you through the various works of art commissioned by the city to decorate New York’s subways since 1985, including sculptures, mosaics, murals and installations, all of which are easily missed if you move at the pace most New Yorkers do. While many mistakenly believe the tour is about graffiti, Darryl, the Bronx-born tour guide, says the art shown is as legitimate and well crafted as any that would be placed in the MOMA, though sometimes he’ll point out renegade art too. Much favored by repeat visitors to NYC and city natives alike, the tour will have you seeing the subways in a whole new light.

Combined, the guides also speak four other languages aside from English: Russian, Spanish, French and Malay.

Chelsea Gallery Private Tour

Quick Details

  • Clock Duration: 2 hours
  • Users Capacity: 4 people max (Covid update)
  • Calendar Availability: Saturday Thursday Tuesday

We are your guides in the labyrinth of the Chelsea gallery scene. Our 2 hour private tours are carefully curated to offer an elegant in-depth walk through the best art shows on display.

Chelsea gallery district is presumably the worlds densest contemporary art scene. It hosts over 300 contemporary art galleries, from across the art world spectrum, but mostly recognized as the place to see the most buzzing blue chip art of the moment. At every given moment thousands of exhilarating art works are on display- paintings, sculptures, photography, video works, installations, performance art and cross disciplinary works- which makes it difficult to sort even for art professionals.

Our carefully curated Chelsea gallery art tour offers an elegant in-depth walk through the best art shows on display. We will discuss the art on view in context, give an overview of the artists and their story, as well as some insights into the hosting galleries. When we craft our monthly tours we think of storytelling and the way each show we choose to include compliments the thread of our time, bringing us deep into the socio-political agendas that influence artists, art dealers and our world at large.

The gallery tour is guided by Lital Dotan- an artist, curator & playwright, a leading figure in the experimental performance art field. She is the founder of Glasshouse ArtLifeLab, curator of The Cinema of Transgression film festival at Glasshouse, co-curator of The Brooklyn International Performance Art Festival, producer and curator of the 100 hour Neo Domesticity Festival among many other initiatives. Dotan is licensed by New York City’s Department of Consumer Affairs as a tour guide.
