We loved seeing the Frick Collection, including a Turner exhibit. The art is wonderful, but so is the architecture of the property. We also liked that it was across from Central Park--always good for a pre- or post- stroll.

The Frick Collection is housed in a mansion opposite Central Park that was the home of a robber baron with excellent taste in art. He collected mostly landscapes and portraits annd even if your knowledge of art is not vast you will recognize the artists. The house itself is beautiful and the central courtyard is an oasis of quiet beauty.... More

vermeer, Holbein, Impressionnists.....it will blow your mind! The Frick residence itself is magnificent. The scale of the collection is unbelievable, with many items rotating in and out of store-rooms.

If you have time to visit only one NYC museum, then you have to come to the Frick. It is a great collection - set in a beautiful building - with some of the greatest Renaissance paintings in America. The Vermeers alone are worth the price of admission. I come to New York probably once every three years. I always... More

This is a small museum at the standard NYC price ($25). I thought the architecture of the building was as interesting as the art collection. Take a moment to look at the books in the library; I enjoyed just admiring that collection, too. It is a lovely place, but is a small collection of good art.

The Frick is well worth a visit; not only is the art collection superb, but the space itself is also beautiful and not as crowded as the MoMA or other museums--it's a great date spot. First Fridays are free.

The Frick Mansion, alone, is worth seeing, but the art is simply stunning. The Rembrandts, Renoir, Monet and works by other leading artists will make this your favorite art museum visit in the city.

For $22 there should be more to see. But there's not. The collection is certainly impressive, and the old mansion in which the collection is housed is also lovely, but the collection is simply too small to warrant such an expensive ticket. You can see the whole museum in 20 minutes — maybe 30 minutes when taking a leisurely pace.

One of our favorite New York Museums. Small, but really nice collection in a Private Home setting. If you don't have a lot of time to go through one of the big museums, or even if you do, give the Frick a try.

An old mansion formerly owned by Henry Frick. Firstly the mansion itself is worth seeing as the attention to quality is amazing. Built about 1915 as a home it was converted to a museum later on. There are amazing works of art on display and it's a much more calming experience than going to the big museums. And no kids... More

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
