Henry Clay Frick to New York City in 1905 and rented one of Vanderbilt’s Triple Palaces until his own mansion, designed by Thomas Carrère of Carrère and Hastings, was complete. Inspired by the luxurious hotels of Paris, Frick’s Beaux Arts mansion is now home to the beloved art museum, The Frick Collection. The museum has been under renovation since 2020 and is set to reopen in late 2024. Until then, you can see the art of The Frick Collection inside the former Met Breuer building, now called Frick Madison.
