We have been to NYC several times but this was our first venture to the Frick. I'm not sure which impressed me more - the original section of the mansion or the collection. Just incredible and worth more time than we allowed. Plan to come back and revisit next trip as well. If you are on the fence - GO!!

No Museum or Gallery I have visited offers more great art per square inch or a more comprehensive view of world art ( allowing for the modest size of the collection) than this gorgeous palace built from the embers of Henry Clay Frick’s coke-production enterprise. Vermeer, Hals, Rembrandt, Titian, Holbein, Constable, Gainsborough --- to name only some of the principle... More

Fabulous collection of art work in a small, manageable size venue. The house itself is worth seeing and a calm and relaxing place to visit.

Among the awesome artwork is the original Gilbert Stuart painting of George Washington, Hans Holbein's portrait of Thomas Moore and Cromwell, and El Greco's Purification of the Temple.

The quality of the art in this once private collection is amazing. The organ pipes in the stairwell are gorgeous. A must see for art lovers.

You will find many reviews celebrating this museum. Well they should. If you like museums that express the personal taste of the collector then you will love the Frick. The choices he and his family made of world class old masters in rooms thoughtfully decorated with the best of design and materials of the era are stunning.

Words cannot express the experience of walking through a home that is graced with such beautiful art. Just stop and take in each room as it is presented. Do Not Miss this home.

I was last at the Frick Museum in 2005. It combines an interesting history and a great piece of New York architecture with one of the great private art collections. It is also located not far from the Metropolitan Museum in Manhattan. This museum is remarkable for two Vermeers (only 34 in existence), two fantanstic Gainsboroughs, an imortant Holbein, Van...

Unbelievable art and china. Felt as through Mr Frick was watching over it all. Loved going from room to room and everything was left set up just how it had been when the family lived there

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.
