New York City has plenty of sites to visit and share with the tourists. Depending on your taste and needs, you can go to parks, museums, restaurants, entertainment places or historic sites. If you happen to be passing through the Upper East Side and want to see a jewel of the old New York City, pay a visit to the Frick Collection. This mansion was owned by a XIX century industrialist, Henry Clay Frick.

In this architectural beauty, The Frick Collection is situated. Besides this amazing collection, the building has an underground bowling alley. This tycoon playground was commissioned by Frick in 1914. It is a vintage beauty with mahogany walls, pine and maple lanes and custom made set of balls that are still in perfect condition. After the owner's death in 1919, the bowling alley was abandoned and served as a library storage space in 1920's. In 1997, The Frick Collection restored it back to its functional glory yet keeps it locked.

 On the first Friday evening of the month, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., (except January)
