Fort Tryon & Inwood Hill Parks, with a visit to the Cloisters

About 3 miles at a slow pace, but with some hills. Take the "A" train to 190 St. and then the elevator up to Fort Washington Ave. -- or take the #4 bus directly to 190 St. and Fort Washington Ave. Meet 11 a.m. by the benches at the entrance to Fort Tryon Park on Margaret Corbin Circle. After a stop at the New Leaf Cafe (restrooms), we'll go through Linden Terrace (the highest point in Fort Tryon Park and the second highest natural elevation in Manhattan, with great views of the Hudson and the city). After lunch (bring lunch & beverage, as there will probably not be a place to buy anything) we'll visit the Cloisters, which currently has the brilliant stained glass windows -- on loan from Canterbury Cathedral. We will also take a look at the famous Unicorn Tapestries -- and anything else people might want to see. (Admission is "pay what you wish" -- $1 is fine). Afterwards, we'll walk through Inwood Hill Park, the largest forested area still remaining in Manhattan, and the only entirely undeveloped park. The walk should end around 4 with a pause for refreshment at the Indian Road Cafe on 218 St. (near the 215 St. stop on the #1 subway). Call or email me if you have any questions.
