    Gertrude Tredwell lived her whole life here until her death at the age of 93, and her work to keep it and its furnishings preserved are the reason it offers such a perfect look at 19th century NYC.

    Read the binder they give you. Check out those gas lamps in the main room downstairs. Oldest working gas lamps in the world. Go upstairs, open the door in the hallway.

    HauntedNYC: Manhattan's most haunted house. People have seen a woman while working in the cellar, ghostly men in brown suits, and have seen, smelled, heard or been touched by things that aren't there.

    Maybe it's because they are currently renovating buy it's not recommended. Not much to see here. Disclaimer: we're from Europe so maybe we're spoiled.
