Wordless Wednesday...The Cloisters, NYC








"The Cloisters, the branch of The Metropolitan Museum of Art devoted to the art and architecture of medieval Europe, was assembled from architectural elements, both domestic and religious, that date from the twelfth through the fifteenth century. The building and its cloistered gardens—located in Fort Tryon Park in Northern Manhattan—are treasures in themselves, effectively part of the collection housed there. "

...as always, for more Wordless Wednesday, check these out.

  7. I remember the Cloisters - we went there several times when I was in school in NY. They do have a great view of the Hudson and Palisades. It seems so far from the rest of the city.

  12. I have never been to the Cloisters, and I don't think I'm going to make it on my trip to NYC this weekend. It looks like it could be in Italy--if there wasn't that view of the bridge!
