My parents visited us in New York around Christmas last year. For one of our outings, we went to the Cloisters in Washington Heights.
The museum is an assortment of old European art and architecture that some guy imported. At that time (late 1800s through the 19-aughts), there were a bunch of old abandoned and half fallen-down monasteries and churches that no one was using. I assume people would be more interested in them now, but maybe there are just soooo many old religious buildings in Europe that these would still be considered dregs.
The collector assembled all of the partial monasteries into one eclectic building.
It’s a good place to take your parents 🙂
