New York City is a photographer's dream. In addition to iconic urban landscapes nearly everywhere you look; it's a city ridden with photo galleries. And, that goes for well beyond the obvious Chelsea and 57th Street areas. Gallery-hopping is a frugal and less stressful alternative to a day-long museum jaunt because galleries are almost always free, and if you attend an exhibit opening, you're further blessed with free drinks et al. For good measure, however, we've included two museums worthy of your photographic desires. Consider these picks when you can't bear another abstract painting or ironic performance art.
