Just went today for my first visit, having been on my wish list for a very long time. Got there at 10 a.m. and it wasn't crowded at all even on a Friday in Dec. in NYC. In a few hours, you can breeze through the gorgeous rooms comfortably and see all the wonderful works there by masters such as... More

The Frick is a small museum with works of art of the highest quality, but as a visitor you may have a disagreeable experience because of the rude staff, not worth of a third rate museum in a provincial state. In the their web they say last tickets are sold at 17.30 and that the museum closes at 18.00, which... More

Thank you for your comments, which I will pass on. Those who arrive after 5:30pm are not charged admission for the reason you point out, but I do understand your larger concern about communication and timing. More

We were stunned by the beauty of the Frick estate and collection. The paintings by every major old world painter rivals the collection at the Met. The peaceful, lovely courtyard was so beautiful.

When I visit New York, I always go to MOMA and the Met, others run to the wonderful Guggenheim or the new Whitney among others in New York but often the non cognoscienti are not familiar with the Frick Collection, a wonderful, beautiful collection of art that also features special exhibitions. I recommend a visit to the Frick for a... More

We spent an afternoon being variously amazed and awed by the extent of the collection - just breathtaking. We had no idea as to the full extent of this collection, and spent a lot longer than we expected here - a very unexpected treasure. We particularly enjoyed seeing the Gainsborough painting.

If you have any interest in art - this place has an incredible collection. Not too expensive and can spend a good few hours walking round. Also can watch a few screenings of history of building / family etc. Good little gift shop too

The Frick collection has paintings by many great old masters like Rembrandt, Goya, Turner and van Dyck. Sizewise its rather limited so you dont really need to spend more than a few hours there but you get to see some top of the line painitings in a great surrounding built by Mr Frick in his own house around 1900. I... 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.
