In a city known in part for its art museums, the Frick Collection shines bright. Completely manageable in an afternoon and much less crowded than MOMA or the Met for example, a leisurely stroll through the Frick home is worth your time. The mansion sits facing Central Park on the Upper East Side. The architecture of the mansion alone is... More

I loved the Frick. There is something beautiful everywhere you look. The setting is as magnificent as the artwork.

Once the home of Henry Clay Frick, this museum holds wonderful paintings, porcelain and history. Not to be missed.

Guards are rather intrusive, so much yakking. The mansion is as much a part of the experience as the art.

Time spent in the Frick is a welcome respite from an overcrowded city filled with packed skyscrapers, subways and shoppers. The Frick Collection is elegant, without being cold; it's a warm, welcoming home filled with beautiful objects and details. The present exhibit on the work of bronze chaser and Master Gilder Pierre Gouthière quite simply is one of the most... More

This museum is a gem, easy to find and small enough to feel comfortable in, unlike the more well-known NY museums. It has a very impressive and eclectic collection of paintings, and an amazing small bronze collection. They provide free audio devices that give concise, interesting history and/or facts about the art work. The Henry Clay Frick house (now the... More

I have been here twice, and thoroughly enjoyed the visit both times. It is not too crowded, you can get up close and personal with the art.

I finally convinced my wife to trek into the city for an afternoon of great art and great food. The Frick is small compared to the other art museums in NYC but it packs a lot of great art. The collection is awesome. The architecture and furniture is beautiful. The overall vibe is snooty but not too pretentious. I was... More

What a collection! This museum has it all, including my favoite room in the entire USA. The living room has a Bellini, 2 Titians, 2 Holbeins, and an El Greco. Who could ask for anything more? Then, there's the Ingres, the Velazquez, the 3 Vermeers, the Memling, the Boucher room, the Fragonard room, the Boule furniture - it's almost overwhelming.... 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.
