Another great place to find art is at The Salmagundi Club at 47 Fifth Avenue. They occasionally do art auctions where you can find a nice original painting by a contemporary artist for very little! And of course it's a good investment. My favorite thing to do is to go to street sales, flea markets, good will, salvation army or where ever and find valuable pieces. In my last trek I bought for 5.00 a lithograph by Millet of "The Gleaners" but here's the catch, it is signed by Millet himself! So for 5. I purchased a piece valued at over $7,500. Not bad. I also did a little presentation on youtube about how to find a cheap apartment in nyc: what every new yorker knows! Or maybe not.
