Note that this is a former warehouse district, and it may be necessary to walk into a building to examine the directory to see what is actually there. Also, be aware that many are on a summer schedule - limited hours and perhaps second-string shows. The galleries aren't all photography - but it doesn't hurt to look at other forms of art.

There are also a few galleries in the few blocks North and South of Canal Street, and along Broadway. In the last few years, a few have relocated to a couple of buildings on 57th Street.
The problem is that I will only be there for a few days and want to be as efficient as possible. My primary plan is for this to be a photo expedition, so visiting the galleries is secondary. In any case, given the time crunch, I need to be certain that the galleries I visit will have something to look at. Usually, I think that just means checking them out on the web and giving them a call in advance.

I was in NYC once before when I had more time and managed to browse through the warehouse district you're referring to. In fact, I still have a stack of business cards from there. I have more time on that trip, though.
