What better place to be alone than a monastery? Sure, this particular monastery is a museum now, but still, it's the perfect place to be alone and contemplative. Everything about the Cloisters (except, maybe getting there from Brooklyn) is a treat. The architecture transports you right to medieval Europe, the unicorn tapestries remind you that, even though you're alone, you're special
, just like Jesus was special, and, hey! he was single too, and the stunning views of the Hudson River and the Palisades are never more gorgeous than in the fall, when all the foliage is aflame with color. And since the Cloisters is part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, that means it's suggested donation. So look at that! You're your own cheap date. This is a perfect day.
