Why New York City is the Best City for Artists

“Once you have lived in New York and it has become your home, no place else is good enough.”


I have always been connected to New York especially Manhattan. New York City is the home I will always choose. It’s ethnically diverse. It’s endlessly interesting. Almost anything you can say about it is partly true and partly false. first time I visited New York was in 2011 and again in 2013 and I instantly fell in love, I felt so connected to this beautiful city, it felt like a home to me. So many art galleries, Museum of modern art (MoMA), Time square, Manhattan, Brooklyn Bridge, The Empire State building oh boy, I can go on and on whole day talking about it.

There are more professional/social/cultural opportunities there than almost anywhere else in the world. It feels like the center of the modern universe and yet has visible history all over the city. People feel connected because everyday is a new day. Everyday you get to meet from people from all walks to life, all over the world. It is probably the only place in the world where you feel so small amongst the crowds, yet so invincible as the whole world is in front of your eyes. New York City is a major center for art galleries. Artists and collectors from around the world visit the city in search for inspiration.


The experience is something that you can probably only get in NYC, that's why no matter where you far you go, you will never forget the connection that you feel in NYC.


Below is the list of some of the top art museums in NYC

My Top 3 Favourite Art Galleries in NYC

  1. Gavin Brown’s Enterprise

  2. The Brant Foundation Art Study Center

  3. Sperone Westwater

There are 1,500 art galleries in NYC, according to some estimates, making it the largest concentration of galleries in the world. Though located in all five boroughs, these spaces tend to congregate in Manhattan neighborhoods that include Chelsea, the Lower East Side and the Upper East Side. I still have to see many other galleries, hopefully in my next trip until then “au revoir”, means until we meet again!
