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:
http://www.metmuseum.org/visit/visit-the-cloisters/~/media/Files/Visit/cloistersfloorplan.pdf

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.

    Ron:

    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.
