  • They can not miss visiting this site. Always with very good examples in addition to the beauty of the place. Bathrooms deserve special mention. They seem to exrraidos a film or a theater: marble, seats facing mirrors of time, a luxury.

  • I absolutely love the Frick. Combine a historic mansion on Fifth Avenue with some of the best art in the world and you get the Frick. The history is so cool and it's like stepping back in time as you walk through. Watch the video in the Auditorium - gives a great introduction if you've never been there. The special exhibitions are always welcome done as well, and feature both their own art as well as little-seen art from around the world. If you live in NY you can also attend classes and lectures there, which I highly recommend. I make it a point to come visit every time I'm in New York!
  • Went here on a whim and was pleasantly surprised. The original house is beautiful. the additions added when it was made a museum integrate flawlessly. I enjoyed the art collection, i could stare at a Degas or Turner all afternoon. I would highly recommend the 15 minute Guided Tour/Talk. It was very informative and brought great value and meaning to the works around me. I would have never guessed what i learned about the interior courtyard. Great stop for any art enthusiast!
  • The Frick is a beautiful museum. You are basically walking through some old rich dudes house filled with priceless works of art. The one drawback- there are lots of chairs you can't sit in. You also can't take pictures or bring in kids- both of these things I personally found refreshing. Also definitely check out their bathroom while you're there.
  • One of the most enjoyable art museums I've ever seen! The history behind the plane really gives it a unique feel. The room guards however tainted the experience with their coarse and overbearing attitudes. See other reviews. They really affect the enjoyment of this place
  • The Frick is amazing both worth the greatest art from so Manny different master's! But then you have this space that this amazing iconic art is in which is a stunning mansion house that the Fricks lived in! It's a special jewel here for New Yorkers and tourist alike. A to favorite gem stores to experience!

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
