to the cloisters

I spent my Sunday last weekend visiting The Cloisters. Although situated in a different location, the cloisters are a branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art that focuses on medieval art. It was a gorgeous day before the cold weather hit, and the walk from the station was very pleasant as it allowed stunning views of the Hudson River. The architecture of the building is medieval inspired, and the museum was so quiet and peaceful, it was fun to imagine what it would be like to live during that time.

Although not pictured, the unicorn tapestries were one of my favorite parts. Not a whole lot is known about these series of tapestries featuring a hunt for a unicorn, but they are so richly colored and beautiful to look at. I definitely recommend visiting this place!
