Fort Tryon Park is a public park located in the Hudson Heights neighborhood of the Washington Heights section of the New York City borough of Manhattan. It is situated on a 67-acre (270,000 m²) ridge in Upper Manhattan, with a commanding view of the Hudson River, the George Washington Bridge, the New Jersey Palisades and the Harlem River.

Fort Tryon Park is site of The Cloisters, a branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art devoted to medieval art and culture, and home to the Unicorn Tapestries. The Cloisters incorporates several medieval buildings that were purchased in Europe, brought to the United States, and reassembled, often stone by stone. [1]

Tips

  • Beautiful park - just beware of some wildlife (skunks) when it gets dark out.
