  • Hidden in Harlem, this is one of the unexpected surprises you might find in NYC if you don't only look for the conventional tourist trip. Everyone of the staff is super friendly and helpful. The guide...  read more »
  • In Harlem, this House was built in 1765 and is the oldest residence in New York. George Washington have used it as an Office and the furniture used is on display at the mansion. The building is beautiful and is in a very quiet place, but is a space with a small collection. In addition, the garden needs a basic maintenance. Attractive interesting but not phenomenal. If interested, the entrance to the Museum is $ 10. To reach the attractive, take the subway line C towards the Harlem stop on 163rd Harlem Avenue.

  • 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.
  • I love this museum I was very amazed with all the new information I learn about the history of NYC.
  • Had a rejuvenating Yoga class here yesterday with yogi Chelsea, then I got to tour the house which is very enchanting and beautiful. The Sunken Gardens is very peaceful to sit and unwind or catch up. The gift shop carries lovely one-of-a-kind items too.
