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

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

Built in 1765, this wonderful old home is an historical treasure in a well preserved historic neighborhood. As the oldest remaining home in New York, it needs work on the outside to be returned to its original beauty but the inside has been lovingly restored...More
