Description: The Mount Vernon Hotel Museum & Garden (built in 1799) transports visitors back to the days when midtown Manhattan was a country escape for New Yorkers living in a crowded city at the southern tip of the island. New York City's only surviving day hotel, this unique museum brings the bygone era of old New York alive for visitors of all ages. The museum displays Federal and Empire furniture as well as eight fully furnished period rooms and historically designed gardens.
