The Met Cloisters

Why locals recommend it
Take the A train to northern Manhattan to visit the Cloisters, a branch of the Met dedicated to medieval European art and architecture. Located on four acres, the museum of five cloistered abbeys has great views of the Hudson River and George Washington Bridge, and the gardens are a quiet display of medieval life. Concerts at the museum’s Fuentiduena Chapel sound like the echoes of some other time and place far away from New York City. It’s worth planning your visit around one.

“One of New York's best hidden and luscious parks. Constructed by the Rockefeller's in the early 20th century, this park is home to the Met Cloisters, Heather Garden, views of the Palisades, a Dog park, and fairy-garden style hidden winding staircases. Don't miss the many events they host throughout the year! Include nature walks for kids and adults and a full Medieval Festival with turkey legs and jousting in September”

“There's a poor side and a rich side of these 2 side by side docking/fishing areas. We visit both and sometimes eat at the restaurant, fly kites on one of the docks, stick our toes in the sand and occasionally have splashed in the river. In the summer there are sometimes 2 swans who come to visit. ”
