  • Seems like you have stepped into another time, lost in history. Time is frozen here. I could sense the inhabitants especially in the drawing room with the piano, ready to be played by one of the daughters of the household. The wedding dress of the lady of the house showed that she was a slender, petite one. Plenty of religious sayings on the walls and a well thumbed bible on the table made her a devout Christian lady.
  • I really like that you have the option of doing a self guided tour or come at a specified time to a group tour with a guide. It was a very interesting building to see. The man working there mentioned that they had many artifacts from this family that were not currently on display. I asked him specifically if there were any of the artifacts that I study in my line of work and the only answer I got was "honestly, I have no idea, but of you come back sometime we might have more stuff out". That's not very helpful.
  • This museum opens on Mondays! It shows the memorable history of the Irish immigrant in NYC. You are able to begin your journey with a guide book or join in a tour. All of the staffs are extremely helpful and hospitable.
  • a cool museum in the middle of manhattan, owned by the same family since it was built, furnished with all original stuff. a real step back in history.
  • I like the history. So, the house and its history are interesting. But exibition and house's conditions are depressing.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
