“The Met Cloisters, located on four acres overlooking the Hudson River in northern Manhattan’s Fort Tryon Park, is the branch of the Museum dedicated to the art, architecture, and gardens of medieval Europe. Deriving its name from the medieval cloisters that form the core of the building, it presents a harmonious and evocative setting for more than 2,000 exceptional artworks and architectural elements from the medieval West.”
Basically, it is a museum of doors and windows and columns and such. And right now there is a special exhibit called “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.” I will do a post on those as well. If you want to see more interesting door photos check out Norm 2.0.

Thanks for sharing these and for making me smile. This post brought back great memories of our visit there about 2 years ago. It is such a magical place. I do hope to go back for another visit at some point.
