Take the A train or taxi up to 190th Street, and come explore majestic, hilly northern Manhattan. An elevator takes us up to Fort Tryon Park, whose 67 acres (about 25 ha.) features spectacular Hudson River valley views, as well as The Metropolitan’s Cloisters Museum, a wonder of medieval religious art. It’s set in a structure that looks much like an ancient hilltop monastery, replete with cloistered gardens.
After 90 – 120 minutes of museum and park exploration, we again descend, then walk ten minutes on Broadway to Rue La Rue Café, the Golden Girls-themed restaurant, for coffee or a meal!
Tour fee: $40 per person 18 or over.
$15 per person 17 or under.
Fee does not include Cloisters admission, or food/drink at Rue La Rue.
N.B. There is often a line at the cafe on weekends.
