Edgar Allan Poe Cottage reviews
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...

I love having a piece of History in the Bronx. To know the building across the street were once apple orchards is crazy. Edgar Allan Poe was a great writer and poet and to know he wrote a few of his poems in that very cottage is nostalgic.
The Edgar Allan Poe Cottage was undergoing major restoration at the time of my visit. I intend to return once the cottage reopens, and I will re-evaluate my rating then. However, I feel more than justified in awarding four stars at this time. It is easy to forget about how much it costs to properly keep up historical residences (even small ones). In a city like New York, it would be easy to demolish this humble abode rather than keep it up. Certainly, it would likely be easier and more profitable to do so rather than preserve this scrap of history. These points are worth recognition.
