The Frick Collection
Tired of your studio, or your one bedroom flex apartment you share with 2 other roommates? See where the real high class, wealthy, and cultured people used to live back in the days.
The Frick Collection is an art museum now, but was first built in 1913 as Robber baron Henry Clay Frick’s- yes that’s his name- mansion. The Frick Collection holds many traditional painting all from Monet’s pieces to Renoir’s. There’s also a garden court where you can relax and enjoy the quietness and enjoy the spring breeze. Of course it has a fountain, like all great mansions do!
My favorite part of this mansion/art museum is that it is a great wedding venue. You have to be a private member but if you are, this is a choice different from a castle but with the same classy opulence anybody would be in awe of.
