Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum

895 Shore Rd.
Bronx, NY 10464
Pelham Bay


This Bronx landmark was built in 1842, and Mayor LaGuardia used it as his summer office more than nine decades later. Today, it’s a place to experience 19th-century country life in modern New York City. The architecture is breathtaking, with a freestanding spiral staircase at the entrance, floor-to-ceiling windows on the second floor and magnificent, flora-filled grounds outside. Tours and special events immerse guests of all ages in the history of the site and the borough.
