on vacation for my first time in New York, i was given the suggestion of taking my dad to see the cloisters, a part of the met museum of art. situated high up on a west side bluff, there resides the most magnificent ancient art collection, the way they placed it back together for our viewing was a masterpiece as well. its one of a kind, you should go. it is a calm and serene kind of visit, welcoming in the middle of the rest of the hustle and noise of New York.

Here's a glorious collection of art housed in authentic Middle Ages structures. The "Unicorn Tapestry" is worth your time, as is the effort required to reach the museum ground. Gorgeous.

The Cloisters is an absolutely amazing place to visit and the exhibits are awe inspiring. You would never believe you were in the city as you are transported as you leave your car and walk into the buildings and through the grounds. Spring and summer are the best as the flowers are all blooming.

We got here too late to go in but even Tryon Park and the Cloisters is worth just a nice stroll around for a bit of a break from the hectic city.

Rockefeller looked out across the Hudson, loved what he saw from the Cloisters and never wanted his view to be hampered by buildings- so he bought up the property across the river and it's still green and empty of buildings.

Takes a little time to get there on the subway but definitely worth it. The park around the Cloisters is beautiful, overlooking the Hudson River. The Cloisters is a semi-hidden gem of the city.
