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.

The Frick Collection is a museum in on a old house next to Central Park. The place is gorgeous. The thing I had prefer is the interior garden with exotic plants. It was so unexpected here. The museum is dedicated to classic art of the owner of the house. There is famous painters like Vermeer, Renoir… but it wasn’t the best pieces of those artists. Also the collection is small and you can’t visit all the house. 


Gorgeous museum that transports you right back to the past. Can you believe this was once the home of Henry Frick - a person's home?! Quiet and welcoming - the collections can be enjoyed by all.

Most Beautiful sanctuary on the Upper East Side. Home to some amazing collections private and public.

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!
