As an artist and repeat visitor from out-of-state, I cannot praise this collection too highly. Anyone with any interest in art will be immensely well-rewarded by a visit. I am sorry that words simply are not enough. Just come see it. Kenneth Koster

Paintings by El Greco, Goya, Velasquez, Murillo, Sorolla...and more in a very interesting gallery space together with religious artifacts. Definitely off the beaten track near the northern tip of Manhattan but totally free all the year round.

Completely off the beaten path, this art gallery and musuem ended up being one of my favorite stops in New York, perhaps precisiously because it felt so unvisited and undiscovered. We had nearly all the grounds entirely to ourselves. The collection alone is astounding but...More
