The Best Place to Tell Someone You Love Them (2008)

The Cloisters at Fort Tryon Park

Seemingly a world away from the farrago that is New York's busy streets, The Cloisters at Fort Tryon Park proves that New York City is a city of disparity. Completed in 1935 by Frederick Law Olmstead Jr., the park offers a romantic view of the Palisades across the Hudson River and the George Washington Bridge to the south. Meandrous stone walls, heather gardens, observation terraces, and an old horse stable converted into a cottage augment these grounds that spread for 67 acres, providing a haven from speeding roller bladers, wandering tourists, and scavenging pigeons. It's the perfect place to take your loved one.
