This set of Friday Photos is brought to you from The Hike, straight up the hill, to The Cloisters through Fort Tryon Park.
The First Set of Stairs.
The Stairs Begin to Curve.
The Spot Where You Stop and Pretend to Admire the View, as Your Heart Jumps Around in Your Chest.
Oh Good, One Last Set of Stairs Until it's Over.
Editor's note: If you double click on the photo then open the original size, at the top of the stairs to the left near the lamp post, you'll see a perfect stone for sitting. Not that one needs a place to sit for a while, I'm just mentioning another spot to admire the view.
Unfortunately, When You Get to the Top of the Stairs, You See This.
Fortunately, It is the Last Set. Once More, Here's the View from Above.
And Why Would Anyone in Their Right Mind Climb these Stairs? Why to See The Cloisters.
And then Suddenly it Turned to Night, so I Snapped a Shot of That Too.
Question: Is there a way to see The Cloisters without climbing the stairs?
Answer: Yes, but it is the wimpy way. Take the A train to 181st Street, take the elevator up to the top of the hill, detour around the panhandler asking for $$, then walk through the park 15 minutes to The Cloisters.
Question: Isn't there something that can get me closer?
Anser: Yes, a cab..................Well, actually, there is a bus, but you're on your own figuring out which one.
............Okay, okay, I'll play nice. Use THIS, to help find your way. There. Are you happy now?
