We will have two posts on this site: one on the house, one on the museum.
Nerd Trips ABCs:
Admission fee: It’s free
Bathrooms: Okay, a little old. Located on the ground floor where you enter.
Concessions/food: Not on the premises. However, the house is one block off Broadway, and it’s New York City, there’s food everywhere.
Cars/getting there: It’s New York City, parking is tough. But there’s lots of public transportation. You can take a taxi, the subway or a bus. The website has more information.
Coffee cups (aka souvenirs): There is a small gift shop with lots of books. On our second visit, I actually got a TR bobble head, which now sits in my office.
Curiosities: On the birthplace website, it says that TR drank about a gallon of coffee every day!
