Cloisters & Fort Tyron Park, New York City: 19 reviews and 33 photos
This is one of New York's hidden treasure. It is a part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, located on the Northwest side of Manhattan, close to the George Washington Bridge. The museum is devoted entirely to the medieval arts and the building helps created the feeling of being transported back in time. The museum is surrounded by beautiful Fort Tyron Park and to get there, you have to walk from the nearest subway station, about 10-15 minutes ... and trust me, it doesn't feel that long because the walk itself is a pleasure. It's highly recommended to go there in the summertime, since all the flowers are blooming and the weather is nice. Some people sometimes just go to the park and have picnics or just walk around with their families and friends. Unfortunately, most tourists miss this, because of its isolated location, but it's really worth checking out .. especially if you want to experience the more relaxing side of New York City.
The way to go there is to take the A train to 190th Street and walk towards the Margaret Corbin Drive. Or if you prefer to take the bus, take the M4 uptown to the last stop (Fort Tyron Park).
