EXPERIENCING THE DIVINE
Our sojourn to northern New York City will take us first to the largest cathedral in the world, St. John the Divine, an impressive, though still unfinished, edifice. Next we will visit the Cloisters, five abbey buildings brought to the United States from Europe and reconstructed in Fort Tryon Park. Some of the highlights include a 12th century limestone apse from a church in Frentiduena, Spain, a 15th-century illuminated Book of Hours, and the Unicorn Tapestries, a permanent exhibit of seven late gothic tapestries portraying the Hunt of the Unicorn. Our last stop will be for a sumptuous lunch at the New Leaf Restaurant housed in a cobblestone building from the 1930’s nestled in a copse of majestic trees. Cost includes transportation, guided tour, lunch, snacks and gratuities.
