For Edgar's 167th birthday, a look at his home in The Bronx:
In this home, Poe wrote his poems "Annabel Lee" and "Ulalume" reportedly while the family cat sat on his shoulder.
Located on Kingsbridge Road and the Grand Concourse in The Bronx, New York. Library of Congress photo taken circa 1910-1915.
In 1905, it was announced that $100,000 had been authorized by the state legislature for the restoration of the cottage and creation of a park in which to house the cottage after the owners were reported to be denying visitors access to the cottage.
