245 Bennett Avenue in minutes away from spectacular Fort Tryon Park, a City, State and National Scenic Landmark, is 67 acres of wooded paths, beautiful gardens and dramatic unspoiled vistas of the Hudson River. The park's restaurant The Bonnefont is scheduled to open in September. The nearby newly renovated Jacob Javits playground has activities for all ages and is certainly one of the nicest in the city. The Met Cloisters is at the North end of the park, a one-of-a-kind museum that serves as the Medieval art branch of the Metropolitan Museum on 5th Avenue. Thanks to the Fort Tryon Park Conservancy, there are numerous public events throughout the year including summer concerts and the annual medieval festival.
