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 350 years in NYC.
Definitely take one of the guided tours. On the Saturday that we visited in March, the tours are offered at 11, am, and at 1, and 3 pm. Admission was $5 per adult, $3 for seniors, and $3 for kids. The admission is well worth it.
My, how the neighborhood has changed. There is free street parking nearby. This was once some incredibly fertile and productive farmland. Thankfully, they are maintaining a nice vegetable garden there, just like back in the day.
