The Frick Collection
1 E. 70th Street btw. Madison and 5th Ave. New York New York 10021-4967
The Frick Mansion was designed by Carrere and Hastings, the same architects who worked on the New York Public Library, and was built to "make Carnegie's place look like a miner's shack." Preserved on Millionaire's Row, the mansion is a grand setting for an incredible collection of European painting and decorative arts. The enclosed inner courtyard is a perfect place for weary art lovers to take a rest.

Fees: General: $7, Students and Seniors: $5, children under ten are not allowed to the Collection, and those under sixteen must be accompanied by an adult.
