Having visited the Frick homestead in Pittsburg, we were well aware of the Frick Collection in N.Y. This is a unique collection and each painting has been placed with much time & thought as to how it will be viewed. Be prepared to be in awe of variety of this collection. I would have been more impressed had visitors been... More

This museum is great because it is set in a private mansion. They have the Greats there and every piece is awesome and selected by the owner of the house. It's like going over your Uber rich friend's house to look at his art collection.

This gallery offers an exceptional selection of masterpieces from English, French, Italian, Dutch or American painters from Middle Age to early 20th century. You might recognise some famous pieces by Rembrandt, Ingres, Gainsborough or Turner and others. The Fragonard room is absolutely unique. I visit the Frick collection whenever I am in New York and feel the same emotion each... More

Tourists (and a lot of New Yorkers) are understandably dazzled by the Met, MoMA, the Whitney, and the Guggenheim museums. Which is why the Frick is too often overlooked. First, the building itself is an exquisite work of art, a mansion from the Gilded Era of NY barons. Second, the excellently-curated shows are always of interest, low key though they... More

The Frick collection is a wonderful Place that takes you back to the historic New York lifestyle in the early days of wealthy New York families! The art is truly wonderful to see and the extremely fantastic antiques found inside gives you goose bumps! If your an antique lives this is a great place to see some equidistant works! I... More

"Turner's Modern and Ancient Ports." There are two sections. In the Oval Room are five paintings. Three are grand views of ports arranged side-by-side. One is on loan so it is a unique experience to the three together. (In the Frick's marvelous Renoir exhibition they brought together three companion paintings. See them all once was a great pleasure.) The other... More

Henry Clay Frick was one of the richest men in the early 20th century. He wanted his home and his art collection to show his wealth, and it certainly does. Unlike his former friend Andrew Carnegie, Grice had no desire to own contemporary masterpieces. His tastes were for old masters, and his mansion brings to mind the 18th century architecture... More

This place is incredible, even if just for the space. There are some really famous pieces in this collection. Get the audio guide - it's free!

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.
