Cloister@MET

Far from the tourist crowd and the time square lights, a medieval cloister in Manhattan on upper west side. Extreme contrast between the tall downtown and midtown skyscrapers and this tiny cloister located along Hudson river in northern Manhattan with Washington bridge view.

The structure was built with pieces from five different medieval French cloisters (in New York all is fake) and you will find a collection complemented by seven thousands pieces.

You can find better and original cloisters in Europe but the museum is great, someone defined it as “the crowning achievement of American museology”, and an afternoon in this neighborhood far from midtown and others overvalued New York spots can be a new way to discover this Town.
