Edgar Allan Poe Cottage, 2640 Grand Concourse, Bronx, New York, USA

Edgar Allan Poe and his wife, Virginia, moved into this cottage in 1847, when the Bronx was still a rural area. His wife had tuberculosis and Poe hoped moving here to the fresh air would help her. Unfortunately Virginia eventually died and Poe then moved on to Baltimore. The cottage was restored and contains some of Poe’s original furniture, including the bed Virginia died in and Poe’s rocking chair.
