This collection was my absolute favourite of the various galleries and museums we saw in a month long visit to NYC. Henry Frick has oodles of money and, perhaps surprisingly, fabulous taste. He collected the best of the best and housed it in a mansion on 5th Ave which became a museum on his death. Whilst the collection has been... More

This house and museum is brilliant. It has amazing art and is not over ostentatious. There is a free coat check and free audio commentary which is well worth having. Most exhibits are not even covered. Well worth a visit!

Palatial home of late Henry Clay Frick has an impressive collection of artwork displayed throughout the house and a grand atrium with pond and fountains. Definitely watch the short film about Frick himself and the collection and get the headset which is free so you can tour at your leisure and hear information about the pieces which interest you

What a great spot and Amazing artwork, we went on a very snowy day and it was great to escape into this country house in the middle of New York. Staff very helpful and informative. Good lunch spots a few blocks away . Worth a visit without a question.

This awesome collection of paintings, furniture, priceless Chinese porcelains is housed in the palatial home of the late Henry Clay Frick...(Google him up...one of the original UBER-rich tycoons of over a hundred years ago...The house he built there in the heart of the city has a tranquil but grand center courtyard atrium complete with pond and fountains, etc. If you...

As it's not a traditional museum, the Frick Collection space is smaller. Housed in a former industrialist's mansion, it certainly has its share of treasures - several Vermeers, and Rembrandts, and a few Turners as well. It is small enough to feel intimate without being overly busy or crowded. That said, there is a strict no-photography policy in approximately 95%... More

The Frick Collection is housed in a wonderful space, the spectacular former home of the Frick family. The collection is small compared to the larger museums, but what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in quality. Rembrandt, Titian, Veronese, Vermeer, Holbein, Goya, Velasquez, Van Dyck and on and on. Not a clunker in the bunch. Audio... More

Fabulous collection of art. From one masterpiece to another in a fairly intimate space. I would have appreciated a decent map.

This early 20th century home of Mr. Frick, wealthy industrialist, houses a lovely collection. The setting is intimate and the pieces are lovingly display. The audio guide is excellent. A great experience. 3 Turner's and 3 Vermeer's.

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods 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 neighbourhood, 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.
