The Cloisters

Updated: Nov 19, 2020

The Cloisters Museum in Manhattan is a must see. Nestled in a corner of Fort Tryon Park and overlooking the Hudson River, this museum is dedicated to Medieval art and architecture. As a local I would visit almost everyday after school (Mother Cabrini High School was walking distance). Its meditative, cloistered walkways provide a get-away from the noise and bustle of life in Manhattan. It is truly transportive.

Be sure to visit the Unicorn Tapestries and search for the letters A&E - the mystery still unsolved. Is it the artists initials? Someone's secret message?
