  • I’m a fan of Edgar Allan Poe and was excited to visit his home. It’s small and unassuming, but the Poe family seemed to enjoy living here, although his wife died of tuberculosis in this house...  more »

  • This stop was on accident, as a huge Edgar Allen Poe fan, I didn’t even realize this beautiful part of history was fairly close. So my husband and I set out to visit, and were immediately greeted by Glen with such an enthusiastic personality that drew my husband and I closer to this place. He started with interesting facts about the cottage, some known and some not known which made the experience even better! Personality I recommend huge fans of Edgar Allen Poe to visit because it’s location is crazy. It’s in the middle of Poe Park, and surrounding it is the hustle and bustle of the Bronx, but once inside this cottage, that all goes away for moments when you truly take the time to appreciate the history of such an American poet. Glen entertained us throughout with great knowledge and I will come visit more often as to their recent renovation of the outside. Can’t wait, thank you again Glen! You’re awesome and deserve all the best for your wonderful energy!
  • Quite an amazing find in a congested area of the bronx. If you enjoy Poe's work, you have to go. After a short film about Poe and the house, explore the cottage. Very knowable staff makes it even more interesting. Allow 45 minutes to an hour for the full experience. Check website for hours. On street metered parking
