Fort Tryon park is one of New York City's best kept secrets. Tucked away on the Hudson, Fort Tryon is a slice of magic, a rose in the briar patch.
Wandering about on the tree lined paths above the river, or wandering up steep stone steps, you experience a whole new New York, something which you might have thought doesn't exist in "The City Which Never Sleeps" ™ ®. But it does, and boy it is beautiful!
When you think of green spaces in New York City, you immediately think of Central Park, or maybe Battery Park or Riverside Park, but people tend to forget Fort Tryon simply because most people don't know it is in New York, let alone Manhattan.A hop, skip and a Subway stop away from downtown. One of the best things about Fort Tryon is that it incorporates The Cloisters, an annex of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, set in a beautiful building and garden.
I highly reccomend a visit to Fort Tryon Park, it might be a little off the beaten track, but it is worth the excursion.
