It's easy to get swept away by early 20th-century opulence. In our last installment in Valentine’s Day video series with GloboMaestro, Michael Bordenick, the in-the-know concierge at The Surrey hotel, takes us to one of New York City’s most intimate, and dazzling, museums in town—The Frick Collection. The former 18th-century French-style mansion home-turned-museum on the Upper East Side is home to countless European masterworks, sumptuous décor, and even a fun little secret in the basement. Watch and join Michael as he takes you behind the scenes of the former titan of industry’s residence. If nothing else, it will make you fall in love with Gotham’s Gilded Age.
