This is one of my "go to places when I have business in NYC. My business is hectic at best and the Met Cloisters is where I go when I just want all the city's cacophony to stop. Very relaxing and enjoyable

For European visitors this is the closest to european historic buildings, its located in a nice place away area and sorrounded by nice park. It will take about 20 min. By taxi. The shop is really nice to get a present from it.

Gorgeous examples of medieval architecture and art. Fantastic grounds. Splirge on an uber or taxi there and back. Subway is too far away.
