We visited The Cloisters in Upper Manhattan. The Cloisters is a branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and incorporates parts from five European abbeys which were disassembled and shipped to New York City in the 1930’s for George Grey Barnard’s medieval-art collection. The collection was purchased by John D. Rockefeller, Jr., and given to Metropolitan along with some pieces from Rockefeller’s own collection. We spent a couple of hours here, and were not able to see the entire collection.
We then took a tour on one of the Hop On Hop Off buses, to see a little more of the city.
Our flight left JFK at about 9:30 pm, and we had an uneventful flight. Home and in bed around 1:00 am, with lots of good memories.
