The first day of the weekend is the second public day of Frieze New York 2017. Plan your day around the city and the fair

Before heading back to the fair, the Upper East Side beckons, with galleries including Acquavella, Hauser & Wirth and Skarstedt participating in the Frieze Upper East Side and Harlem Morning.
