The small white house where Poe lived in the 1840s, where he wrote The Bells, Annabel Lee, and other works. It’s at the intersection of Grand Concourse and Kingsbridge Road.
Poe’s cottage was saved from demolition in 1895, when two literary gentlemen, Albert Frey and Dr. Appleton Morgan, got the idea to move it out of the way of the widening of Kingsbridge Road. In 1896 the state legislature approved the current site as Poe Park, a permanent home for the cottage.
If you visit, don’t miss the tiny, but well-stocked, halal meat and grocery store, just across Knightsbridge. Very good selection of spices. I bought a 200 gram (7 oz.) bag of curry powder for $2.50.
