Quirky/offbeat, Family-friendly

The oldest house in Manhattan was originally built in 1765 as a summer house for a British army colonel, who was forced to leave the home during the American Revolution. George Washington himself moved in, and the mansion, which sits on one of the highest points in the area, was where he planned the Battle of Harlem Heights. (Aaron Burr also lived in the house for a short time years later.) Visitors to the historic mansion, which became a museum in 1904, are welcome to explore on their own; guided tours are offered ever Saturday at noon and the first Sunday of the month at 1 p.m.
