  • Although this restoration is the birthplace of Walt Whitman and was not his home during adulthood the curators provided a good overview of Whitman's life. Nice gift shop too.  more »
  • Our great poet was born in this house his father built in 1819 and lived here until he was four. It's lovingly painted and furnished as it would have been during that time; although, you will only see...  more »

  • What a fun little place! I came here for a poetry event for an association I belong to and I never knew of its existence. I learned a lot of history about Walt Whitman and for a poetry reading the space was large and accommodating. I was also a nerd and read all of the quotes and history about Walt Whitman. It was a little hard to find, and it is somewhat obscured by the road, without a lot of signs or anything indicating that it is there. Glad I finally stumbled upon this little LI gem.
  • Very friendly and engaging tour guide, especially for small children, but knew plenty of answers to my questions too. Really brings literary history alive!
  • Lovely parcel of land, but that's the most interesting thing about it. Even the employees looked bored.
  • I find the description of WW House as being in "Strip Mall Country" highly offensive. It was apparently written by someone who lives far, far away. The Walt Whitman House is a beautiful museum on Long Island's busiest commercial boulevard. It is an example of what life on Long Island was, and still IS in many spots. For the record, Long Island has more beach than Florida, world-class restaurants and hotels, a thriving tourist economy, is the heart of Technology in NY State and has NY State's largest continually productive agricultural county, Suffolk. Additionally LI is home to SUNY Stony Brook, Adelphi University, Molloy College and a dozen other institutions of higher learning. Two minutes of research would have revealed this, if the "non compos mentis" who wrote it had taken the time.
