The Cloisters museum and gardens, located high atop a hill in northern Manhattan's Fort Tryon Park—only 30 minutes by subway from Midtown—is devoted to the art and architecture of medieval Europe. You can enjoy unparalleled views of the Hudson River, stroll through enchanting gardens and see masterpieces of medieval sculpture, stained glass, tapestries and more! This is one of the best Date My City destinations so far!

Then on our way home from The Cloisters, Craig and I found a private pocket of Fort Tryon park with free table tennis! Go NYC Parks & Rec! We played for two hours --- and even with all of those tennis lessons he still kicked my booty!
