  • This park is very distant from the center and is where the Met Cloisters is located. It brings gardens very durable care, beautiful views of the river and at least during the week silence and tranquility. If you go to the museum, take a walk for it.

  • This is a secluded park that you should definitely visit if you're visiting The Cloisters. Walk down from the cloisters entrance for about 10 minutes.

  • A great quiet park in northern Manhattan. The park is generally not overly crowded and is a nice escape from midtown. This is a great place to come for a walk or to enjoy the views. There are also some commercial shops in a fairly quiet neighborhood. In my opinion, definitely worth the subway trip up from lower Manhattan although it's not as grand as Central Park.
  • Fort Tryon Park is a great place to walk or lounge. There are terrific views of the Hudson River, Washington Heights and Inwood. Just being in the park you are already in one of the (natural) highest elevations in Manhattans and the park itself has hills and terraces which offer further elevations above that. Finally there is, of course, The Cloisters, a museum of medieval art. It's way uptown (take the A train) but it is called well worth a few hours of your time.
