Life on a Roll: The Cloisters Museum

Bernie Langs

The Met Cloisters, an offshoot of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, is located in Fort Tryon Park in Washington Heights. The museum boasts a first rate collection of European medieval art and architecture as well as outdoor garden spaces with fabulous views of the Hudson River and beyond. The Cloisters is rarely crowded and offers a place for meditative enjoyment of art in a quiet and engaging atmosphere.
