If the park police let you in there it's a nice view of an old stone building. It's in a NYC park so bring your kids and let them play.

Very lovely, historic house that houses a small gallery with rotating shows that are generally very interesting. Stop in to learn about the Battle of Brooklyn and maybe attend one of their events or concerts. Worth a visit if you are in the neighborhood.

Worth a stop with young kids so you can wear them out. Squirty guns to shoot at the adults. Interesting venues inside the Old Stone House as well as a small museum and in the summer plays in the park.
