  • We chose this partly due to time constraints and partly due to the architecture. We were not disappointed — a wonderful collection of art, bronzes, faience, enamelling, etc. Very pleased we visited.  more »
  • Impressive private collection with unique works from the European art elite-some of the works are the best ones: Van Dyck, Rembrandt, Manet, etc. Fantastic located across from Central Park.

  • From someone who was born in NYC, I am shocked that I did not know about this Art museum/collection! The place is gorgeous! I love how by just walking into the place you get taken back centuries. They also have a library on 71st. Great, quiet place to learn about the history of Art. They offer so many great exhibits year round. The staff is friendly and well-mannered. The walk to the museum is good too, since The Frick is tucked away in a very well-kept neighborhood of Manhattan (Right next to Central Park! )
  • Very classy, elegant, and poised collection! Went on Wednesday, which happens to be a "pay what you wish" day (2-6 pm). Every piece being showcased had a purpose, and is very delicate at first glance. Upon gazing for sometime, one can find themselves lost in the beauty, the style, and the details. I really enjoyed the limited Washington showcase! Loved how you could follow a timeline of the sculpture! and how it came to be! Definitely would come back again! A fine establishment to say the least!
