The weather today was warm, bright and dry so we took the subway to northern Manhattan near the George Washington Bridge and visited The Cloisters, a museum specializing in European medieval architecture, sculpture and decorative arts. It is set in a green and lush area adjacent to the Palisades with views of the Hudson River and NJ. The Cloisters is part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Wonderful museum, but allocate enough time since there are so many exhibits. The senior ticket allows entrance for several days.

Sometimes I forget that this museum is in NYC, as it seems so unlike the rest of the museums in the city. It's in the northern part of Manhattan but easily accessible by subway and bus, so please do go in warm weather and soak in the scenery and artwork. The art are arranged so that people can take them in at their own pace and at an unbiased, neutral angle, and I'd say that the buildings themselves are part of the art. The tours are wonderful, as the tour guides are really knowledgeable and make the art more fascinating.

I highly recommend taking the once-daily highlights tour. On the one-hour tour, the guide discusses a number of items in depth. It’s like getting a free university lecture. We took the subway up from where we stayed in Times Square. It was easy to get to. After the train, you can take the bus just one stop or walk through the park (if you’re healthy and the weather is nice). We chose to take the bus on the way there and walk back through the park. The ticket from The Met Cloisters can also be used at The Met—it’s good for three days.
