Cloisters Museum, garden, park, and woods

Let’s visit the Cloisters--a big castle in northern Manhattan housing a renowned collection of medieval art and architecture—plus adjacent Fort Tryon Park, with a large flower and herb garden, and Inwood Hill Park, with the last natural forest in NYC. We’ll start by touring the parks; then we'll have lunch (bring your own) at around 2:30 in a lovely spot overlooking the Hudson. We’ll visit the museum itself after lunch. Here's a link to more information about the Cloisters:

DISTANCE: About 3 miles, ending around 5:30, though you can leave after 2:30 or so if you wish.

PACE: Moderate (not slow, except for the garden and museum). The terrain will be slightly hilly.

COST: Pay what you wish for the museum, plus $1 to (for me) to cover Meetup’s organizer fee.

MY CELL NUMBER:[masked]; please don't call before noon that day.

    Fantastic walk! Thank you, Ron for organizing and guiding the tour. I appreciate all the research and scouting you have done before hand.

    I got there late. I only went to the museum. It was interesting.

    What a great experience...thanks, Ron! We explored parts of northern NYC that most NYers would not recognize as being part of their home town. The Cloisters is truly a special exhibit...a must for anyone with any interest or knowledge of medieval Europe.

    For anyone who lives on the upper west side (above 110th Street) I just discovered that the M4 bus is another way to get to the meeting point.

    Is it possible to meet to go to the garden and museum?

    No Wayne, we're going to the Bronx branch of the Cloisters.
    Just kidding--thanks for the correction.

    A night walk? cool... and sounds romantic too. :)

    The Cloisters is in Manhattan, not The Bronx

    I'm usually an owl, and I've never done a night walk, so I'm looking forward to an adventure! :)

    I'll be doing at least one night walk during the summer. Other than that, 2:30 is generally too late for an optimal starting time. Hope you can make the night walk, or your schedule changes.

    Hi Ron, All your meet-ups sound fascinating, but I haven't been able to participate because of the time frame. I can't get into manhattan till 2:30 Sats and Suns, so I'm hoping that as the days get warmer and longer, you'll start some adventures 2:30 or later. Thanks.
