Serenity in New York City at The Cloisters
In 2006, we had a wonderful three month stay in New York City. Our final full day there was Easter Sunday. We took the A train from Midtown to 190th Street to enjoy signs of spring at Fort Tryon Park to visit The Cloisters, a branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, located in the park. The museum contains an extensive collection of medieval European art and religious artifacts. The building itself was constructed in the 1930’s from architectural elements of medieval abbeys.
We love the excitement and energy of Manhattan, but the serenity of The Cloisters seemed just right for that sunny Easter day. The photos below are just a few examples of the treasures to be seen on display.
