Really nice little museum with great art - It is the former home of Henry Frick so it's nice that you can see in some of the rooms how he lived and in other rooms just long galleries of art. I like it because it's small and you can stroll through it in a couple of hours leaving plenty of... More

A jewel in NYC! Must see. Next to Central Park, fine art, architecture, paintings, sculptures and rugs.

This is the spot to see a beautiful collection of art without the intensity and lines of the big museums, but definitely in the same caliber.

The Frick is a lovely intimate art museum with a lovely collection. Whenever I go there, I feel like I am visiting old friends. The Frick adds tremendous character to the city and I am glad it is there so I can go again and again.

This is a small personal collection in what used to be a home. And because of the size, it can be visited in just over an hour without tiring. Previously free, it now charges an entrance fee, but the audio equipment is free. An interesting video explains the history which adds a backdrop to the man behind this place. The... More

Smallish yet breathtaking collection with emphasis on American artists, though several Rembrandts, a Monet, Manet, multiple Picasso. The setting is unbelievable! What a stunning place. The staff could have been a bit friendlier, but overall this is a place to which we cannot wait to return!!

One of the best in the world for sure! yet the size and the feel compared to the other "big ones" in the city makes it lack a bit of the feel the other have. Some great pieces nonetheless!

This hidden gem on the Upper East Side, a mile down from the Met, is not to be missed. Beautiful artwork in every room provides a peaceful respite from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan. The ban on young children ensures a low-key experience.

There is no other museum in New York quite like the Frick. The quality of the works on display coupled with the integrated setting make this house museum the perfect place to visit.

The Frick is a great museum to visit, especially if you have just an afternoon instead of a full-day--or a week. There's an excellent array of Old Masters, including a couple of Rembrandts, Turners, and Vermeers--it doesn't get much better than that. The collection reflects Frick's personal preferences, rather than those of an art specialist, but overall is remarkably good.... More

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.
