Although the American poet Edgar Allan Poe has been gone for many years now, his home and High Bridge continue to serve as remnants of his beloved walks in The Bronx. Join BCHS 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 E. Kingsbridge Road. Take the D or #4 train to Kingsbridge Road or take Bronx buses #1, #2, #9, #22, #28, #34, and MTA express bus BxM4 from Manhattan.
Tour costs $10 for BCHS members, $20 for non-members. Contact The Society at (718) 881-8900 to reserve your spot. The tours generally run about 2 hours.
