Sublime art

I am a Vermeer lover and that alone drew me there. The elegant surroundings and other paintings increased my delight.

Housed in a former mansion (designed to one day be a museum) you get to see wonderful artwork, as well as fabulous home furnishings. Like walking into an earlier era. The short film is great background.

The Frick collection is an excellent choice if you are looking for a beautiful museum that you can see it all in approx. 3 hours. It has beautiful gardens and pools that you can relax at.

This house is more or less as the Frick family lived in it in the early part of the last century. It has some marvellous furniture, porcelain and paintings - the latter by some grand masters. There is a free audio guide which was well worth having, and a lovely indoor garden room where you can sit when your feet... More

Here we have a wonderful opportunity to explore the town house of a steel magnate of the early 20th century, and to see the indulgences that wealth could bring in that era. The social architecture within the building gives a glimpse of the opulence of the era for the privileged few, and also allow you to share Frick's eclectic taste... More

This gem of a museum has a very good collection of european and american art for its size. Beautiful place shows decor and ambiance of the turn of the 20th century. Go and visit, you'll be glad you did, close to the MET.

I first visited the Frick Museum in 1962, aged 17 years' old, when visiting friends of whom the Dad was the PR guy for the New York elections for Governor between Rockefeller and Morgenthau. I LOVED THE PLACE AND PRACTICALLY LIVED THERE FOR A WEEK. My very favourite painter Ingres is great evidence with several absolutely beautiful nudes for which... More

Whatever else you do in NYC don't miss Frick Collection - for a $20 entrance fee you get to stand up front and very personal with some of the most extraordinary works by extraordinary artists. The setting is beautiful and the paintings displayed so well. We particularly liked the audio guide which had a number guide so that you tapped... More

Wonderful neighborhood, history, art collection. You must stop in here if you're in NYC to see how the wealthy elite lived. The history is very interesting and this bygone era is just not something you come across from everyday. Worth a visit. We happened upon a certain hour window on a Sunday where the admission is free or a suggested... More

The Frick Museum is located in a home instead of a commercial building. It has more Ver Meers that the Rijksmuseumin Amsterdam!!

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.
