FRICK COLLECTION
1 East 70th St

212.288.0700
Closed Mondays.
At the corner of 5th Avenue.
European fine and decorative arts on display in the 1914 mansion, the former home of the industrialist Henry Clay Frick.
The quiet and moneyed neighborhood of exclusive white glove apartment houses, mansions and brownstones between Fifth and Lexington Avenues is where wealthy and society-minded New York has entrenched itself since the late 1800s. Here, while museums cater to the art hungry and boutiques to the shopping-obsessed, smart restaurants feed ladies-who-lunch, well-attired fashionistas and the neighborhood's Euro-centric old-money-minded set.
WALKSEE
20th and 21st century American art in a signature Marcel Breuer 1966 inverted pyramid building design.
Floating on the border turf of Central Park the museum consumes the streetscape with its plaza and central stairway. The collections are vast and engaging.
SOLOMON R. GUGGENHEIM MUSEUM

Take a visit for your fill of Non-Objective, Modern and Contemporary arts from the 19th Century to the present. The Frank Lloyd Wright 1959 building is a uniquely Modernist inverted spiral design.

Galleries dedicated to the Jewish cultural identity and visual arts. Housed in the former mansion of Felix Warburg, a French Gothic chateau-style design completed in 1908.
CENTRAL PARK ZOO
830 5th Ave

From aquatic life to tropical terrains, it's all about the animal kingdom. There's a fantasy appeal to this Central Park attraction.

WANDERBUY
Stroll Madison Avenue from 57th to 86th Streets for world renown haute couture boutiques, jewelry shops and art galleries for those who dress to shop.

LADY M CONFECTIONS
41 E 78th St

Fine tuned Japanese-edged patisserie set to minimalist rarefied tea salon style.
MAISON KAYSER
1294 Third Avenue

From Parisian based baker comes Maison Kayser. Yes, you can stop here for a sit down dine for a quiche or a croque with the very kiss-kiss Euros and Euro wannabes but best bet are the bakes. Breads, viennoiserie and patisserie that are some of New York's
SANT AMBROEUS UPPER EAST SIDE
