Wyckoff Farmhouse Museum
New York City's oldest house still stands, offering visitors a glimpse into the Big Apple's humble past. The modest home was originally built in 1652 by an immigrant from the Netherlands. Together with his wife Grietje, Pieter Claesen built a one-room farmhouse with a packed earth floor, unglazed windows, and a large open hearth. Over the centuries, the house has been expanded and modernized a bit, but it remains largely unaltered by time. It's now the center of the Wyckoff Farmhouse Museum, and guests can explore its six rooms and three fireplaces in search of old-fashioned architecture or evidence that America was first colonized by aliens.
