Before we say goodbye to St. Frances Xavier Cabrini’s feast day, I feel obliged to mention that her neighborhood contains one of the most splendid places on earth. Yes, my brother lives within walking distance of Fort Tryon Park and The Cloisters.
If you have never been to see the views of the Hudson River which Fort Tryon Park offers, or if you have never been transported body and soul to the Middle Ages by visiting the Cloisters, then you might want to think about getting in your car right now. Stop for something to eat, and maybe the sun will be up when you get there. If not right now, don’t wait too long.
