  • Sunday morning rather illustrative about Harlem, and about this mansion and your representation in Manhattan. Beautiful pictures. Very short walk.

  • The oldest standing home in New York City, once used by George Washington as his headquarters and visited by Adams, Jefferson and Hamilton, this home is worth a visit for the history buffs. Located at the second highest point in Manhattan. You will see the building, a few furnished rooms and the Colonial Kitchen but little of what you see inside is original. Still worth a visit!
  • Truly a neighborhood gem for Washington Heights. The Morris-Jumel Mansion was built in 1765 as a summer villa, by Colonel Roger Morris and his wife, Mary Philipse. Roger was born in England and Mary was born and raised in the colony of New York. Their country estate was named “Mount Morris” and stretched over 130 acres from the Harlem to the Hudson Rivers. Mount Morris was one of the highest points in Manhattan and offered clear views of New Jersey, Connecticut, and all of New York harbor. With the help of their workers, the Morris family grew fruit trees and raised cows and sheep. At that time the island of Manhattan was mostly woods and farms. The roads were built on old trails made by the Native Americans.
  • Beautiful historic mansion, full of history as well as scandalous. Don't leave the are without walking down the street to see the row of wood houses
  • A secret garden in Manhattan. The Garden is lovely and normally empty. You wouldn't expect to find this kind of escape in this neighborhood. The house is run-down and in need of repair.
  • It was simply amazing to see such an integral part of our country's history still stands and to be able to stand in the same house where George Washington himself once stood.
