The Frick Collection & Mansion

Frick%20Courtyard.jpgTrippy: a short visual trip to a place of architectural or design importance

Frick%20Insignia.jpgTrippy to: The Frick Collection & Mansion, a beautiful French-style home designed by the New York Public Library architects Carrere and Hastings for industrialist and art collector Henry Clay Frick, business partner of Andrew Carnegie; when Frick passed away in 1919, his mansion was converted to a very intimate and exciting art museum, mostly housing European works, in 16 galleries that maintain the spirit of an opulent home where fine art was carefully acquired and beautifully displayed and enjoyed (unfortunately, you won't be able to tour the 1914 bowling alley in the basement)

Location: 1 East 70th Street, between Fifth and Madison Avenues, in New York City
