cloisters_the walk

The Cloisters are part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  They are located in Fort Tyron park and overlook the Hudson River.  The Cloisters house a large collection of Medieval European Art intermingled with gardens and the architecture of French Cloisters.  To get there you take the A,C,E subway to the 190th street stop and follow the signs towards the Cloisters.  It’s about a 10 min walk from the subway.  I really liked the walk up to the Cloisters as well as the descent (yes there’s a descent, the Cloisters are located on a pretty high hill relative to the street level below).  It was a peaceful and nice park area.  Also got a glimpse of the density of the Northern tip of Manhattan which was pretty incredible.

Density!
