In the middle of Grand Concourse and looking SO out of place is the cottage that could use a level to keep it from sinking. Bring the "bux" as the admission is non negotiable. There are hourly tours.

It might not be your vision of Wayne Manor, but the Edgar Allan Poe Cottage is Batman’s real birthplace. His creators thought up the caped crusader while sitting on a bench outside the cottage.
The Edgar Allan Poe Cottage house is now a museum operated by the Bronx County Historical Society and was landmarked in 1966.
Poe lived in the house from 1846 to 1846, when it was part of the village of Fordham, and during this time wrote his masterpieces “Annabel Lee” and “The Bells.”
Did you know? The cottage was built in 1812, and moved here from its original location across the street in 1913.
Poe spent the last years of his life here, from 1846 to 1849, where he wrote many of his most enduring poetical works, including “Annabel Lee,” “The Bells” and “Eureka.”
