My husband, who is from New York, had never been to the Cloisters, so we drove from our hotel on the Upper West Side to the museum in Fort Tryon Park. It is possible to access it by public transportation, but since we already had a rental, driving was the easiest option. Not much traffic on a Sunday. The Cloisters is operated by the Metropolitan Museum of Art and is devoted to the art and architecture of medieval Europe. The gardens and buildings are as enjoyable as the art. We were there in the fall and the views of the Hudson River from the museum were lovely. One bonus: you can use your Cloisters ticket on the same day for admission to the main building of the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Fifth Ave.
