Frick collection visit

They were some really nice bronze sculptures on display. They were also 2 beautiful Turner paintings in one of rooms. These were the high light of the visit for me.

Beautiful place. The building in itself is great, architecture and style. The art collection is impressive. Huge names in painting... Well organized and friendly. Except kid adverse below the age of 10. And not clear to me why...

An awe inspiring collection of art, statuary, icons and tapestries displayed beautifully in a glorious building. Set aside several hours, take advantage of the audio guide, and prepare to be transported.

I had seen some documentaries lately that included Henry Clay Frick so seeing his former New York home and art collection was amazing. The collection is intimate and easy to see in a couple of hours. Audio hand helds are available.

See how the rich used to live when they still allowed visitors. Many people miss this museum but it is worth the visit.

Lovely collection with several very famous paintings on display. Maybe abit dark, but I suppose this is in keeping with the exhibits Convenient location, on Museum Mile, with several other museums quite close. MY FAVOURITE AMONG THOSE is the Neue Gellerie. on Fifth Avenue on 86th Street.

Very nice collection. Liked the way it is presented and the serenity. only one toilet access... I didn't like the entrance... Too small if there are too many people... One might feel squeezed.

The permanent collection at the Frick is outstanding. The Don Quijote tapestries currently on exhibit are worth the visit just for themselves. The movie explaining the life of Henry Clay Frick is an interesting aspect of our history apart from the art collection. It is not so popular I think but well worth a visit.

If you enjoy touring historic homes and seeing major works of art, this is a must see museum. Mr. Frick's collection of art contains numerous pieces that are included in art history and art appreciation text books. The emphasis of this collection is on portraits.

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.
