The Edgar Allan Poe Cottage in the Bronx By Tom McDonald, NYC Transit retiree

Of all the places around the City that I have visited, the Edgar Allan Poe Cottage on East Kingsbridge Road and Grand Concourse and the adjacent Poe Park are easily among my favorites.  Maybe it’s because the cottage was the final home of one of the greatest American writers.

Built in 1812, Poe moved into the cottage in 1846 with his wife, Virginia, and her mother, Mrs. Maria Clemm. At the time, the area known as Fordham was countryside, and Poe moved there for the fresh air that he thought would help his wife’s tuberculosis. Unfortunately, Virginia died in 1847, but Poe and his mother-in-law continued to live there until Poe died in Baltimore during a speaking tour in 1849. Mrs. Clemm moved out upon Poe’s death and the cottage was rented out for decades, until the City of New York bought the property, moved it a block to avoid possible demolition, and made it into a museum in 1913.

Inside the cottage museum, the over 200-year old structure is amazingly fit, though the sloping ceilings in some rooms require that you duck to go inside. The Bronx Historical Society offers informative guides throughout the day, from Thursday through Sunday.

Most of the furniture is comprised of period pieces, but a rocking chair and the bed that Virginia Poe died in are from the original structure. A small lodging, the Poe Cottage is very intriguing, with a bust and a few portraits of the writer adding to the atmosphere. The master bedroom on the second floor is now used for screening a 17-minute film on the history of the cottage and Poe himself.

A visitors’ center adjacent to the cottage is located within the appropriately named Poe Park, which features a kids’ play area and an old gazebo waiting for some instruments to arrive. The Poe Cottage welcomes groups and there are regular events in Poe Park and the visitors’ center. Poe Cottage, where one of the greatest American writers created some of his impressive catalog, including one of his most famous poems, “Annabel Lee,” is a New York City and State landmark and is on the Register of Historic Places.      

The D train to Kingsbridge Rd leaves you right across the street from the Poe Cottage. The Kingsbridge Road stop on the 4 train is about 5 blocks away. The Bx1, Bx2, Bx28, and BxM4 buses all have stops close by.
