While the Metropolitan is awesome and needs a week to do justice, the Frick is a lovely human scale building with a very high standard collection that only needs half a day to explore and enjoy. Definitely worth a visit

After being at the MET which is so huge and at times overwhelming, it was a relief to go to the Frick. It's more intimate and the house has a really nice feeling. You can slow down and enjoy the paintings, decor and your surroundings.

On our last trip to NYC from Australia we'd visited some of the larger galleries so this holiday was about the smaller, more boutique and out there collections and this one is outstanding! The gallery is a once grand home which provides unique and changing spaces to view the fantastic collection and also provides a glimpse into bygone lifestyles. Its... More

The Frick is a beautiful mansion filled with the lifetime collection of Henry Frick. The paintings are varied, and most by the great masters. The porcelain and furniture is lovely. The audio guide is free with admission, and it is well worth listening to. The courtyard garden is beautiful and a great place for quiet contemplation away from the NY... More

The museum is a treasure, built in what was a private home for a nineteenth century Robber Baron. Frick collected an impressive amount of old Masters, Chinese Porcelains and furniture. Frisk bought what he liked and displayed in his home to be appreciated. He left the house and art with the intention that it be open to the public so... More

The Frick home compliments the collection and the collection compliments this beautiful home, best of both worlds! The beauty of this home is the perfect setting for these old Masters. Definitely a gem in the middle of NYC.

lThe Frick Collection is a gem. It is an old mansion of Fifth Avenue and houses wonderful furniture and art work. The little gift store has lovely things at very reasonable prices

Sculpture Collection in a former American tycoon's family mansion. New York has more to see and do than you will have time for: theater, sight seeing, shopping, walking, people watching, museums, neighborhoods and much, much more! Make sure you get to see the skyline during the day and at night.

The Frick is great. You can be in and out in less than a couple of hours. Perfect especially if your company includes a non museum goer.

This museum deserves to be visited, if only for the Rembrandts and the Vermeers it houses. I have been told that one better not ask how Frick made his money, which seems somehow evident even today in the cold personnel and the unfriendly premises.

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods 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 neighborhood, 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.
