Mount Vernon Hotel Museum and Garden
Upper East Side

Built in 1799 as a carriage house for a 23-acre estate, this stone home became a short-lived country resort from 1826 to 1833 (the city ended at 14th Street back then). Through period re-creations, the museum revisits the hotel era. Don’t miss the backyard garden, which occasionally hosts events.
