The Cloisters is a branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, specializing in medieval art. It stands in Tryon Park, overlooking the Hudson River, and is composed of various pieces of medieval monasteries from France and Spain, purchased and imported by John D. Rockefeller, who founded this museum.

History

The Cloisters was the site of Demona's temporarily turning Goliath into a zombie under her control, the act which turned Brooklyn against her. Its medieval nature thrilled Brooklyn, causing him to describe it to Goliath as "like the world we came from." ("Temptation")
