The Cloisters

99 Margaret Corbin Drive, Fort Tyron Park, NYC

The Cloisters is abbey, renowned medieval art collection, and respite from a busy metropolitan city, all in one.  A short subway ride to the northern tip of Manhattan, The Cloisters sits in the vast and peaceful Fort Tyron Park.  Pieced together from five European abbeys and transported to New York City stone by stone by John D. Rockefeller, it houses an extensive and beautiful medieval art collection curated by the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Its Unicorn Tapestries are world-famous. The Museum, its collection, and the grounds are all worth the trip north.  A Rockefeller purchase of Hudson River New Jersey tracts guarantees pristine views of the Hudson River and beyond.
