Make an NYC historic house your summer house! Spend a summer day exploring, relaxing, and picnicking at the houses' beautiful gardens, lawns, and farms; step inside and experience the old New York lifestyle; and drop in on fun summer events ranging from outdoor concerts and movie nights to book clubs and summer camps for kids.
