Name: Merchants House Museum
Location: 29 East 4th Street (between Lafayette & Bowery)

Sandwiched between a construction zone for the New York City Water Tunnel No. 3 and a storage garage for hot dog carts, Merchants House Museum is one of twenty-one homes in New York City’s Historic House Trust. It offers a glimpse of what it was like to live in New York City over a hundred years ago.

The row house in NoHo was built in 1832 and remains the only 19th Century family home preserved (both inside and out) in New York City. In the same family for over 100 years, the home is furnished with original furniture and some of the family’s personal possessions.
