The Frick Collection and Art Reference Library is another stellar cultural institution along the edges of Central Park. This museum is housed in a beautiful building with a reflection pool garden and several exhibition halls. The Frick Collection provides an engaging view of life in the Gilded Age.
This focus was chosen because the building is the former mansion of Henry Clay Frick, one of the many millionaires who lived along this corridor during America's Gilded Age. The collection here is small compared to the city's other venues, but maintains the highest quality of content.
