At  West nd Street look in on Electronic Arts Intermix, which is noted for its seventies archive. At  West nd Street the sophisticated Sonnabend Gallery shows contemporary art. There are several interesting galleries at  West nd, too. Few galleries have opened yet on West st Street, so walk down to West th Street between Tenth and Eleventh avenues, another major site. One building in particular,  West th Street, houses over twenty galleries (enough to fill an entire day all by itself ).

It is a nice stop on your artwalk for a brief reminder of another time and taste. Across the street at  West th Street (between Fifth and Sixth avenues) is the main building of New School University 5. Its somewhat unprepossessing s modern façade belies the surpris­ ing wealth of artistic works inside, unbeknownst to many a passing New Yorker. The most impressive of these is surely the spectacular five-wall fresco by the Mexican master muralist José Clemente Orozco, which he painted in the s.

Of particular inter­ est are Alexander Calder’s large, red, steel piece called Object in Five Planes 3 and rough-textured iron columnar works by Bev­ erly Pepper on the north and south corners (facing Broadway). Walk around this large building on Worth Street to Centre Street; turn left to find the Civil and Municipal Court Building 4.
