Visit Manhattan's Oldest House
The Washington Heights neighborhood is home to the oldest house in New York City. Just a short walk from our Washington Heights hotel, the Morris-Jumel Mansion is a NYC landmark, made famous by General George Washington during the American Revolution. Highlighting over 200 years of New York history, art, and culture, the Jumel Terrace Mansion Museum interprets the colonial era and hasn’t changed much since the 1800s. The museum is open seven days a week for self guided tours and guided tours are offered on the weekends. The current exhibit "Passage" by Talia Green, a wallpaper art installation incorporating motifs found on the Morris-Jumel Mansion wallpapers to tell the story of Manhattan’s gradual urbanization, is on display until March 27th, 2016. After a tour of the grounds, be sure to enjoy a picnic lunch in the park next door as you enjoy the beautiful garden maintained by the city.
