When Edgar Allan Poe lived in the Village of Fordham (now in the Bronx), one of his favorite pastimes was taking strolls throughout the area. One of his more enjoyable locations was the newly-constructed High Bridge. Although Poe has been gone for many years now, his cottage and the High Bridge continue to serve as remnants of his beloved walks.

Join Bronx Co. Historical Society educator Angel Hernandez on a 3-mile walk from Poe Cottage to High Bridge via Aqueduct Avenue. The tour will meet at the Edgar Allan Poe Cottage in Poe Park on the Grand Concourse and East Kingsbridge Road. If you wish to take a tour of the cottage before the walk tour, feel free to arrive there at 10 a.m.
