One of NYCs hidden gems is the Cloisters. This beautiful museum is an extension of the MET dedicated to the art, architecture, and gardens of medieval Europe, and, like the MET, admission is donation based for NY residents. One dollar could get you admission for you and your date. Exploring the grounds is also a romantic idea. The Cloisters sits in Fort Tryon Park. Explore the old fortress or walk around in the curated gardens. This is a beautiful place to explore trails or sit and cuddle while looking out over the Hudson.
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.
