While New York City is home to internationally renowned museums like The Museum of Modern Art and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, it is also the haven of countless incubators of aesthetic expression—art galleries. Clustered predominantly in and around neighborhoods like Chelsea, the Lower East Side, the Upper East Side and Brooklyn's Williamsburg, these exhibition spaces are celebrated both for the pieces they house and for their accessibility. Galleries are open to the public generally from Tuesdays through Saturdays, free of charge—which includes glamorous opening-night receptions where sightings of celebrities and art-world titans are as prevalent as the wine served (also free). And although they're sprinkled throughout NYC, dense concentrations in the aforementioned areas make it easy to hop from one show to the next. We've assembled the following guide to help you navigate some of the City's most gallery-rich locales.

Chelsea
Warehouses and auto-body shops once dominated the westernmost blocks of Chelsea, between 10th and 11th Avenues from West 18th through West 28th Streets. Over the past two decades, though, SoHo galleries seeking lower rents gradually moved uptown and into these sprawling spaces, transforming Chelsea into the nucleus of the City's modern-art world. Chelsea galleries tend to be vast spaces that host blockbuster shows by established modern artists from the likes of Chuck Close, Zhang Huan and Jeff Koons. Thursday nights are particularly exciting here, as galleries all over the neighborhood open their doors and uncork bottles of wine for glitzy opening nights; in fact, the atmosphere on some streets—such as West 25th Street between 10th and 11th Avenues, where a few buildings house multiple galleries—is that of a bona fide block party. One of Chelsea's most prestigious names, Gagosian Gallery has locations on West 21st and West 24th Streets (as well as outposts on the Upper East Side, in California and in four international cities) and represents virtuosos like sculptor Richard Serra, mixed-media artist Mike Kelley and painter-sculptor Anselm Reyle. Housed in a staggering 30,000-square-foot space, David Zwirner represents innovative artists (like Dan Flavin, Fred Sandback and R. Crumb) who often work with unexpected media (fluorescent lights, yarn and comic books, respectively). 303 Gallery raises eyebrows with exhibitions like Sue Williams' Al-Qaeda is the CIA (which opened September 18), and both Luhring Augustine and Friedrich Petzel Gallery work with impressive rosters of painters, photographers, installation artists and more.

Lower East Side
Gallery culture on the LES is characterized by intimate spaces that showcase the work of up-and-coming and mid-career artists. Spaces are scattered throughout the neighborhood's narrow streets and low-rise tenement buildings, but the densest concentration can be found on and around Chrystie Street and the Bowery. An LES standby for almost a decade, Canada helped put the 'hood on the art-world map with imaginative shows (including this fall's solo show from Matt Connors). A couple of blocks uptown on Broome Street, White Box, another LES pioneer, attempts to highlight today's social and cultural issues by displaying works not only in the gallery but also in its street-level "VideoBox" and on billboards, bus shelters and public transportation vehicles via its Out-of-the-Box series. Half Gallery, a relative newcomer, and Thierry Goldberg Projects, owned by an Israeli-French husband-and-wife team, have been praised for their thoughtfully curated shows held in pint-size spaces. Featured exhibitions at Lehmann Maupin, a longtime Chelsea gallery that also has a Chrystie Street address, have included Yul, Yul Brynner: A Photographic Journey and Light Darkness, an installation from Iranian-born artist Shirazeh Houshiary. And just west of the LES, in SoHo, The Hole has been making headlines since its opening in June 2010, when the founders of the beloved (and now shuttered) Deitch Projects began presenting works at the Greene Street venue.
