May be the most beautiful place in NYC. The buildings were reconstructed from European sites damaged in WWI. The Unicorn Tapestries are a treasure.
There is parking here so we drove but took the bus to the main Met and back.

Hidden? How, from whom? It’s a wide-open outdoor space I’ve visited many times since the 1960. Many other appear to have likewise discovered this ‘hidden’ jewel.
