  • I only heard about this place from watching Ghost Adventures believe it or not but once I realised it was a do-able trip while in NYC this Christmas, wanted to visit as a historic building (and maybe ...  more »
  • Beautiful historic site in Manhattan. The dream surroundings. Although I could not enter the home because they said that they had lack of staff, I admired the place and its history. The city is seen from there. The neighborhood is maintained as in the 17TH century. It is a pity that not made you arrangements to run it as a museum open.

  • I'm sure this is a hidden gem. But today, on a frigid afternoon when the mansion was supposed to be open, one worker slammed the door in my face and another threatened to call the police if I did not get off the property. ((I was already off the property and while I like to think of myself as formidable, I am 61 years old, not exactly a threat. ) Apparently, pipes inside were frozen, though there were no signs of any emergency workmen and no indication that the repairs were being done or the Mansion was closed. This seems like a mighty strange way to be treating tourists. And in this electronic age, was it not possible to post the special closing on the Mansion website, if not on the actual gate?
  • Didn't go inside the first time I visited and was pleasantly surprised when I did check it out; the interiors are well preserved and are interesting to see.
  • What a hidden gem. Very nice historical site. Obscure, but easy to find, as long as you follow their directions on their Web site.
  • Love this place. Friendly docents and beautiful grounds. It's a gem tucked away in the middle of the city.
  • great park and house.Important part of our history.Staff very knowledgeable and helpful.Takes about 45 minutes to an hour including allowing time to stroll around the park.If you couple it with the Hamilton grange house,you have a nice little historic tour involving the two rivals.

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.
