The Frick collection has paintings by many great old masters like Rembrandt, Goya, Turner and van Dyck. Sizewise its rather limited so you dont really need to spend more than a few hours there but you get to see some top of the line painitings in a great surrounding built by Mr Frick in his own house around 1900.

We had the best time at the Frick. The art works are incredible and so well displayed. The house itself is an architectural masterpiece too. It's a great museum where you can see and absorb everything in about two hours, which if you're doing a flying tour to NYC is ideal. The guided tour is excellent as well, really informative... More

This is a must see destination. This museum houses an unparalleled collection of portraits and landscape paintings. Admire the informality of the collection and how it is displayed according to Frick’s taste and not by period or artist. You can get up really close to the exhibits, though any kind of photography is banned. The stunning Rembrandt self-portrait is worth... More

Thank you so much for your visit and positive review. Much appreciated. Just to clarify, we actually now do allow photography in the main signature space at the core of the institution, the skylit 1935 Garden Court. In various other rooms of the former residence (small spaces, more narrow paths, lack of ropes/barriers), we saw some close calls during an... More

I always enjoy small private art collections, displayed in private homes. Mr. Frick has an impressive collection of grand portraits of beautiful 19th century women, along with stunning decorative arts. Mr. Frick's rags to riches story during the gilded age is worth the visit. As with the metropolitan museum (every day) the Frick offers "pay what you wish" pricing on... More

This outstanding collection of art is housed in a beautiful home on 5th Avenue, adjacent to Central Park. The paintings of many masters too numerous to list adorn the walls. There are also exhibits of exquisite clocks, porcelain, furniture, sculptures and curios. See The Met first, but do not bypass The Frick Collection.

The Frick Collection houses one of the great private art collections in a luxurious mansion at 70th Street and Fifth Avenue in New York City. The rooms showcase old master European paintings in an up close style. You can get close but not too close to the art. No photos are allowed except in the Garden Court. Except for major... More

The Frick has a few dozen very nice pieces of art, but the Met has hundreds. It is interesting to see how the extremely rich lived in NY, but not that interesting. It is a beautiful house though.

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.
