The Cloisters (and Fort Tryon!)

About a year ago, I had my first summer off in many many years. It was also my last summer in NYC, so I did a lot of Last Things. I hadn’t been to the Cloisters in nearly a decade, so thought I’d come back for a revisit. I’m not quite so into medieval art, but wanted to come back to Fort Tryon and wander the general space. I posted a few to Instagram after this little field trip, but realized there were many more I wanted to share and never got around to. So here they are, little captures of things I saw or found interesting/amusing.

One of the Unicorn Tapestries (as seen in Harry Potter)! And a wall detail.

Goodbye, NYC

Today is the big day! I am leaving NYC on a one-way flight and heading abroad. I can definitely say I got to experience quite a bit and am very glad I got to call this place my home.  The past 12 years and 8 months have been anything but dull.

I had many adventures in the city that never sleeps (click for larger).

It was my first adopted home. I got to enjoy all kinds of people watching, especially during a few Halloweens.

I took advantage of museums, parks, and sites.

Attended quite a few gigs.

Last year I said goodbye to David Bowie at the informal memorial that sprung up beneath his home in Soho, and commiserated with fellow citizens the Subway Therapy wall in Union Square.

Not once did I tire of this view.

That’s all for now. I will miss all the wonderful people I have met as well as the amazing food options. However, new adventures await in the next 4 months (or hopefully, longer).
