Beginning in 1672 Frederick and his then wife gradually acquired more than 90,000 acres of land in five NY counties, Albany, New Jersey and Barbados. The... More

This is a a historical site. It features a house from the 1800's, and the history of the period. not to much to see, about a half an hour give or take. I really like the statues in front, take the time to read the narrative, and see just how much we have gone down the sewer since than...

We had been to the Philipse Manor Mill farther north, and were traveling up the slow road along the Hudson north of New York City. We saw this name and stopped. This is the oldest house around, from the 1700's, and has lots of history, which is also the history of the entire area north of New York under the... More

We went when some family visited and wanted to something cultural. Its a nice place and interesting enough and is important to Yonkers history but its not the kind of thing I usually like - others might enjoy it more . The slave exhibition really makes you think.

The manor has many fine architectural details. The family had such an indelible mark on New York - it is worth seeing this to understand the development of the lower Hudson. There was a fascinating exhibition on the slave trade - it really put some of the extreme hardships of the slaves into perspective. The carvings on the main mantels... More
