The opulent residence that houses a private collection of great masters (from the 14th through the 19th centuries) was originally built for industrialist Henry Clay Frick. The firm of Carrère & Hastings designed the 1914 structure in an 18th-century European style, with a beautiful interior court and reflecting pool. The permanent collections include world-class paintings, sculpture and furniture by the likes of Rembrandt, Vermeer, Renoir and French cabinetmaker Jean-Henri Riesener.

One of the coolest museum settings I've experienced-It's in the Frick Mansion across from Central Park. It's so surreal to me to be looking at art works and glancing out the window to see the park across the street. I saw the Renior exhibition here and the Frick was the prefect setting for it. On Sundays it's free before 1pm so definitely go check it out!
