Upon arriving, I was immediately captured by the gorgeous views of the Hudson River with the George Washington bridge as the backdrop. Outside of the museum, The Cloisters offers numerous gardens, courtyards and walking paths with beautiful views in every direction. An added bonus is a neat restaurant named "New Leaf" located on the grounds. It offers a nice menu and a beautiful setting to eat outdoors.
Like many, I never knew this place existed. It certainly is a treasure that I was happy to find.
