    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.

    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

    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.
