Description: 

Municipal Arts Society Jane’s Walk
Meet at 193rd St. & Fort Washington St. entrance to Heather Garden
This walk explores two large parks in Northern Manhattan. Fort Tryon Park is a 67-acre historic park with breathtaking views of the Hudson River, the largest heather garden on the east coast, and the Cloisters, which houses a portion of the medieval art collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. We’ll meet up with a special expert guest and then continue to Isham and Inwood Hill Parks, and see forested land, Indian caves, and more. The final touch is a visit to the newly developed Muscota Marsh Park at the northernmost tip of Manhattan Island. http://janeswalk.org/united-states/new-york-city-ny/walk-heights-manhattan/
