This 17th century Dutch Farmhouse located in East Flatbush is a wonderful place to visit if you are interested in the early settlers.It is the oldest Home in New York! Great history of The Dutch,Slavery and the workings of the Farms and people who came here during the 17th century! The guide was so informative. Good for the entire family!

Really interesting from historical perspective of early new England colonies, economical and agricultural, and consequently slavery perspectives. The staff are friendly and VERY knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Little treasure: exhibit of a late 18 century map of Brooklyn, then the third largest city!

Pieter Claesen Wyckoff House is located at 5816 Clarendon Road in the Canarsie area of Brooklyn. Fascinating to see how the initial settlers lived and to reflect on the surrounding megalopolis. Since structures have come and gone with blinding speed in New York City, this home must have been preserved only by fluke. Good docents.

We went here because we think my husband is a descendant of Pieter Wyckoff and were pleasantly surprised by the history of this home as well as the surrounding area. The docent who gave the tour was incredibly knowledgable and interesting, but also personable. We went out by subway and bus so it took about an hour each way which... More

Marvelous Mid 17th Century Dutch Farmhouse and gardens in the middle of urban Brooklyn. The Docent was quite knowledgeable during my tour and since I was the only one on the tour at that time, we were able to discuss the Wyckoff house in much more detail as well as coming attractions and detailed comparisons to other Dutch style houses...

There could not be a more off-the-beaten path attraction but it is surprisingly important for any American. This is the oldest standing house or structure in New York. Mid-17th century Dutch farmhouse. The docent who gave us a (40? minute) tour around this small structure in the obscure (for both tourists and New Yorkers) section of East Flatbush in Brooklyn...

The oldest house in New York City, dating to 1652 This Dutch family farmed here up until 1901. We enjoyed an incredibly thorough door conducted by the site head docent, Lucy. She answered all of our questions, and then some. Her encyclopedic knowledge uncovers a large number of areas that help to explain how life has changed over the past... More
