  • In the past, history has such a tremendous landmark, especially not something like this place twice. 13 the amount of the advantage. It takes about an hour seeing it all. I was able to look around the look of the past. So, I went to twice that. In one scene in the movie I feel oh so crazy and it seems too good. In the past it's time for information and culture. Was the time I was able to learn the history. Once again, if you have time where you want to go for real

  • A preserved 19th century townhouse that's well worth visiting. There are friendly staff on hand to answer any questions you have.
  • Great find. No idea it was there either.
  • What an immersive experience and a great escape from bustling New York. Such a beautifully preserved relic and amazing to see how the early industrialists and capitalists of New York lived. Everything is well taken care of and the guides are extremely knowledgeable. A really great experience for New Yorkers and visitors alike to get a view into the past and what this city was built on.
  • See how the wealthy lived just few blocks away from the horrible living conditions at the tenements in the lower east side
  • Quick, informative for of a historical and beautiful house. Check out their events calendar for tours, parties, concerts, and more.
