  • Very underrated and interesting place! The tour guide (Hispanic man, about in his 30's, lives a couple of blocks away) is very knowledgeable and will give you a very entertaining tour. You will learn so much about the author, the house, and the neighborhood that surrounds it. I'd recommend it definitely, especially for a quick tourist tour on the weekend.
  • Really great steward who knows everything. Definitely worth a visit! And the Bronx has so many good things to visit in general. Make it a day!
  • Looks great at night haven't been inside.
  • Went today with my daughter and son. We had a great time. Tour guide was excellent...very friendly and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend this gem in the Bronx! If you are planning a day trip to the Bronx Zoo...definitely fit this in....The tour is not long and its a small house! and its literally about a 5 minute ride from the zoo.
  • Said to be Poe's home back in the very late 1800's his wife died of consumption here
