Fort Tryon Park is a gift to NYC by John D. Rockefeller. Centuries later, some consider it an outdoor piece of art with its' historic architecture. Near the Cloisters, a renovated medieval monastery, and with pristine views of the Hudson River, visitors can enjoy outdoor lunches, bike rides, dog runs and strolls.
