The East Village Is Not Dead: Best Of Art Tour

Once home to an array of intimate and creative art spaces and galleries with artists by the likes of Jenny Holzer, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring (at its peak in the 80s), the NYC art scene started slithering southwards to the Lower East Side this past decade. While the 80s are long gone, the good news is that the East Village is picking up steam again with art spaces and galleries becoming established and more active. Amid packed cafes, rowdy bars and crowds, we guide you to the best art spots in the East Village where you can find a bit of respite from the city life while staying stimulated – from emerging art and street art at Dorian Grey Gallery to the revered New York University’s art collection with works by Alex Katz, Elaine de Kooning and Arshile Gorky at Grey Art Gallery
