    Thanks. I don't have any more conveniently scanned and online. I haven't been to the parade in a few years, but it's a neat event to shoot. Steve Anchell has been doing a street shooting workshop at the parade every year for the past few years with equipment on loan from Leica, and I ran into a few people from that crowd. Next time I'd like to spend more time shooting late, after the parade and around the neighborhood, when things are a bit less organized, and I'll bring more film. I think that time I had just four Grafmatics, but I've got a total of 8 plus two Kinematics to keep me going a bit longer. I'll also get a permit to shoot inside the parade barriers, but there's a lot to see even from the sidelines, and if you've got a big camera, people come up to you and pose.

    Melchi's still a little young for that scene (he'll be three in December), particularly since it's late, easy to get trapped in the crowds, and involves a commute back to Queens at night, but maybe in the next couple of years.

    Check out the Hujar show at Matthew Marks... Also a beautiful show of pictures by Justine Kurland, "This Train Is Bound for Glory" at Mitchell Inness and Nash.

    If you go to a gallery like Greenberg, be aware that they have drawers full of incredible stuff that you can look at and isn't hanging on the walls.

    If I'm smoking crack on any of these and should plan for more/less time, please let me know.

    Also, are there any galleries that you particularly recommend? I'm mostly interested in photography, natch.

    I might also do a day of cliche'd midwestern tourist with a rangefinder in NYC street shooting. Is Manhattan best for that? Brooklyn? Somewhere else? I won't be taking anything but either a GSN or a Canonet, and shooting Ektar or Tri-X. Maybe both in case something happens.

    Thanks!
    Tons of thanks to everyone who made suggestions.

    I hit 6 museums, 21 galleries, two studio tours and saw more great art (both photographic and otherwise) than I can begin to list.

    However, since this is APUG, let me implore you to see two things if you're anywhere near NYC:

    The Americans, Robert Frank. Yes, you have the book. Please go see the prints. Holy buckets they are awesome. See his contacts, read his diary pages, see the revisions that Walker Freakin Evans made to his application essay. This is at the Met. Wear comfy shoes. Bring advil.

    Tokyo Untitled, Roberto D'Agostin. OMG. With the exception of three abstracts that didn't do anything for me, print-by-print I kept saying "No way anyone can be this talented." This is at the Leica gallery in NoHo. Also, if you're in the elevator with an older gentleman wearing horn rim Harry Potter glasses, don't say to your wife how just don't see that a Leica could ever be worth the money. You'll end up gnawing on your shoes since you'll have both feet in your mouth. Trust me.

    Also, the Woody Allen sandwich at the Carnegie Deli.

    Again, thank you very much for all the suggestions.
