"Visit the Cloisters in..." Fort Tryon Park & The Cloisters Tip by noahsdad
Fort Tryon Park & The Cloisters, New York City: 3 reviews and 2 photos
Favorite thing: Visit the Cloisters in Washington Heights. In the 1920s, a Rockefeller went around Europe buying up cloisters and reassembling them at the northern tip of Manhattan. The Cloisters are quiet and peaceful, and there's a medieval herb garden to enjoy. There's a treasure trove of medieval art. Even if you don't enjoy the period, the setting--in a park, on cliffs overlooking the Hudson--is beautiful. You have no idea you're in New York City.
Fondest memory: Waiting for the bus in the gently falling snow with my spouse to go see a Matisse exhibit.
