    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.

    South of the Cottage, across the street on Kingsbridge Rd. (about a block away) is a plaque commemorating the original location. It is on one of the brick buildings that face west.

    It's a shack and if you don't look quick enough you might miss it. It's right off the Grand Concourse between the E190s heading down toward Fordham Rd area
