The museum is so beautiful! The outdoor courtyards/cloisters are just lovely. A great place to spend a Sunday. Gorgeous views of the Hudson river. Parking free or take the train to 190th st and walk up the cobblestone path.

This is where you will go to visit the Cloisters. It's a huge park overlooking the Hudson River. A little hard to get to via public transit. Beautiful.

Probably a ton of people other than me. I haven't been above 110th street in probably 20 years. Fort Tryon and the gardens surrounding are gorgeous, the view of the Hudson is spectacular and the history lesson made me really happy.

One of my favorite parks in New York City! Beautiful and well-maintained gardens with foliage that explodes in bright colors in the fall. Walk paths are in good condition. The park sits at a higher elevation and slopes gently in places, making it ideal for cardio workouts. The elevation also allows for panoramic views of the Hudson River, New Jersey,... More

Gorgeous park located in Upper Manhattan which is also home to the Cloisters Museum. Autumn is the best time of year to visit and see the beautiful foliage. You can pack a picnic while you enjoy the vistas of the Hudson River, a cool fall breeze and the amazing colors of the trees. What a quaint respite from the hustle... More

A subway trip to 190th is rewarded by the Fort Tryon park and all its walks, gardens, and expansive views over the Hudson river to the Englewood Cliffs in New Jersey. You won't believe you are still in NYC. In minutes you can also walk up to the cloisters on the hill and experience all the medieval treasures it holds.... More

This park is located on top of a mountain on the north of the Island of Manhattan. It has a view of Manhattan below and the Hudson River. We brought lunch with us. Don't expect to find food vendors in the park surroundings. The museum is on the tip of the park "The Cloisters." You feel to be in a... More
