Finally made it to the Cloisters.

I’ve been wanting to go to The Cloisters, one of my father’s favorite NYC museums, for a long time, but I’d never made it, mostly because it is up in Washington Heights around 200th Street.  On Wednesday, I kept the Triumph after our morning ride to Bear Mountain, and since it was such a nice day I decided to take advantage of the weather and the motorcycle and make the trip.

In addition to the beautiful courtyards, it was a treat to see the famed Hunt of the Unicorn tapestries. I had enjoyed reading this New Yorker article about their digitization in 2005.
