The Cloisters is operated by the Metropolitan Museum of Art. And like that institution this is a must see in New York City. The castle/monastery is architecturally stunning and the park it sits in is very nice as well. Being on top of Fort Tryon Park it offers beautiful views of the Hudson River and northern Manhattan. The collection of... More

Located in beautiful Tryon Park on northern tip of Manhattan Island overlooking Hudson River, surrounded with panoramic views ( you can see just one building! ) of the original & pristine Riverscape below. The chapels, Galleries & sumptuous art all date from around the 1100's. Everything is absorbing & atmospheric of monastic life... truly a UNIQUE wonder of NYC &... More

If you love the middle ages you will love this. The building and art inside with the famous unicorn tapestries. You must see it if you love this time period.

This is a great place to visit if you need to escape the city for a day. You can get there by subway (but see my review on that) and it is surrounded by a nice park (probably need to avoid the park at night, judging by the liquor bottles). If you like medieval things, gardens, and landscapes, this is... More

This area of Manhattan is VERY quiet and peaceful. Beautiful grounds. The cloisters have interesting artifacts and is haunted.

Although getting there could be a challenge, take the subway and walk. Great views of the city and the Hudson river.

This place is located at the top of Manhattan and its worth going to just see the views of the Hudson river alone, a lovely place with some amazing artefacts from medieval europe, well worth a visit however be warned it is about 10-15 minutes walk from the subway and if you get the bus this can take an hour...
