I loved visiting this cottage in the Bronx. It was easy to get to via subway from Manhattan. As other reviews have stated, it's a short tour because it's a small house, so best to plan around a full day in the Bronx (there's a...More

Poe is one of the the greatest if not the greatest literary master and many don't know he struggled financially during his life. Any fan needs to see this historical treasure-thank God we have something tangible to remember his life and not just his writing...More

Very important historically. Poe wrote some of his famous works here including “Annabel Lee,” “The Bells” and “The Cask of Amontillado." We took the subway and then walked. Did not feel safe at all. Do not recommend.

This small country cottage was Poe's last home before he died. The house is unique. It's the only place where you can see life as it was lived in the mid-19th century

This attraction won't take up most of your morning. There isn't much to see and not very interesting. Less than 30 min to complete the whole thing. Unless an extremely fanatic fan of Poe I wouldn't bother.

This is a very authentic piece of Poe history, being the home he wrote some of his classic works in and the home where his wife Virginia died. It is a small house, as Poe didn't have much money. The tour guide was excellent -...More

I can't seem to find days of operation info on this. Is it seasonal (like in Baltimore, MD)?
