10. Wyckoff House Museum
One of a handful of historical farms you can visit in New York City, the Wyckoff House in Brooklyn claims the title of the oldest house in New York City and state. It was built between 1652 and 1819 in a mashup of Dutch colonial style and Flemish Medieval Survival style. It’s surrounded by 1.5 acres of gardens, which includes a colonial kitchen garden and farm.
Unfortunately, the interiors of the Wyckoff House will not be accessible due to damage sustained during Hurricane Ida, but a self-guided audio tour will explain the history and architecture of the site as well as the legacy of the family who built it and their ties to the native Lenape people and enslaved African Americans. On Saturday, the home will host Farmhouse Family Day with outdoor activities in the garden for kids.
