Manhattan's oldest house, somewhat of an aberration in the modern neighborhood of Washington Heights, served as a command post for George Washington.

The people here were very sweet, but it was a small and rather mediocre place to visit. Not one of the better historic house museums in New York sadly.

Unfortunately the Mansion is currently closed owing to flood damage and hoping to reopen mid/late February 2018 - advise checking the website. We were staying nearby so did not have a wasted journey.

What an amazing piece of New York history! Washington headquarters here, Burr lived here. It's the oldest surviving residence in Manhattan. Sadly it's in poor shape, the gardens are weeds, the wood on the house needs repair and it's in desperate need of overall care....More

I loved this tour and at first went because I'm interested in ghosts and I know it's supposed to be haunted but the tour was about history/Washington and Burr of course, and that was fine. I do suggest it's ideal for adults, not kids. Most...More

The mansion itself is interesting and has a great history, but the real draw is the grounds. Set on the highest point in Manhattan and with beautiful gardens and trees, you almost forget you're in New York City. A great visit that gets you far...More
