The Frick Collection

1 E 70th St., New York, NY 10021 | (212) 288-0700, United States
The Frick Museum in Manhattan NYC
Michael Bodycomb

Many New Yorkers will tell you the Frick Collection is the best (and certainly, the most beautiful) art museum in the city. Housed in the historic Henry Clay Frick House and named after the original owner (whose personal collection remains on display), this Upper East Side landmark, which dates back to 1912, is home to one of the country’s finest collections of old-master paintings. The aestheticism of the museum itself can’t be beat: the West Gallery, lined with intricate, dark wood crown molding and plush moss green carpets, is breathtaking, and the immaculate Garden Court serves as a sanctuary for those looking to escape the bustle of Fifth Avenue. Parents of young children, take note that those under ten years will be denied entry.
