The Frick Collection

Another one of my "to do" lists was to check out the inside of The Frick Collection Museum. 

The collection was assembled by the Pittsburgh industrialist Henry Clay Frick (1849–1919) and is housed in his former residence on Fifth Avenue. One of New York City’s few remaining Gilded Age mansions, it provides a tranquil environment for visitors to experience masterpieces by artists such as Bellini, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Gainsborough, Goya, and Whistler. The museum opened in 1935 and has continued to acquire works of art since Mr. Frick’s death.
The house is gorgeous. I must say, I was very impressed with the house itself. Photography is very limited to the Garden Court which I will be showing you here, which kind of saddens me. It was kind of nice not seeing people taking photos with their phones, but at the same time, sad I couldn't photograph to show you all I viewed.  
The Garden Court is quite lovely, and very relaxing.  

I was very pleased with the photographs from my new Sony camera. The little guy does a pretty fantastic job!  

                The outside garden is just lovely. A very peaceful spot on 5th Avenue in New York City.  
The cherry blossoms in March were just so darn pink and pretty! 

I must say, after this visit, I do not see myself stopping here again unless there is an exhibit I really wish to view. There is no restaurant, and the limited photography doesn't really make me thrilled. I am glad I visited, but I can see myself going to the Jewish Museum instead, where a fabulous restaurant exists and photography is allowed. I would suggest you do want to see this, even if once, and should be on your to-do list.
