And there will be food and drink from local Washington Heights and Inwood merchants, including Dyckman Beer Co.
The Cloisters, of course, is in Fort Tyron Park, an art-filled Medieval tower that crowns Manhattan’s highest hill, in Inwood.
Nearest subway stops are the A train to 190th St. or Dyckman St.
FWIW — NYC on the Cheap founder and editor Evelyn Kanter grew up in Inwood, and Fort Tryon was “my” park.
