This historic house right on the water and almost under the Verrazano Bridge is a real gem. The grounds themselves are pleasant and scenic and the house has been well maintained much as it was when Alice lived there. They mix up displays of her living space and photography with other circulating shows. If you're touring the waterfront, this place should definitely be on your list.

Alice Austen House in Staten Island is a delightful place to visit, especially on a beautiful summer day. Ms. Austen was a talented and daring photographer. Her home overlooks the water and occasionally during the summer, concerts are held on the lawn. Lovely!

We took a day away from madly running about Manhattan's museums, art galleries, and theatres to drive out to the Alice Austen House, and it was a treat. The 17th century house in a parklike setting was also the family home of Alice Austen - a fantastic photographer in the late 19th and early 20th century. REALLY enjoyed our visit.

Also known as "Clear Comfort", this historic landmark and museum was once home to photographer Alice Austen. This waterfront location offers views of Brooklyn, Manahttan skyline, and Jersey city. During the summer, there are many free outdoor events; live music, and they even host weddings on the property. I enjoy visiting the beautiful, tranquil Alice Austen house year-round, even in the winter with snow everywhere!
