Have you ever thought of having the most romantic spot for your photography session but couldn't quite decide where to do it ?
Let me show you how a quick visit to a local museum can be the best location for your next photo session.
Cloisters Museum is located in the midst of Fort Tryon Park in Upper Manhattan, overlooking the Hudson River.
The museum opened to the public in 1938 and was designed by architect Charles Collens to resemble a French Romanesque abbey.
HOW TO GET THERE
The most efficient way to The Met Cloisters is via the A train, which is the blue line along Eighth Avenue. Once you get off at the 190th Street stop, you’ll walk 10-15 minutes through the beautiful Fort Tryon Park until you arrive at the Cloisters.
WHAT TO DO
After our session and checking the medieval art around the museum, The Met Cloisters has its own small store, where you can purchase gifts and goodies based on the unicorn tapestries and other favorite features of the collection.
There is also a museum cafe called Trie Cafe, where you can enjoy a sandwich, salad, coffee, or a glass of wine or beer. Since the cafe is located in an actual cloister, it’s open in more temperate months, April through October.
