We range in ages from 19-82 and stopped by to visit ... spent 3 hours there! Gorgeous buildings. Impressively preserved and restored properties. Knowledgeable staff. We all enjoyed it. Amazing that this area is still around and has not been torn down.
The town with charm and history.
We visited this town ten years ago and were enchanted then ... but it has improved!
The castle, the park, the walks, the fish and chips and the historic theatre are all so lovely. Well worth a visit.
The better time to visit is spring , summer and fall. Lots of activities, Walking and site seeing. The area had really improved a lot. New infrastructures in place, paving. Very old area one of the oldest in NYC in fact. Preserved by the city...More

I think it means they don't have tours those days and the visitor's center and museum is not open. The grounds would be open because it is just out in the open on a regular street/neighborhood, you could walk through it. You could walk right up to a bunch of the houses, they are just houses on the street. Frankly you probably wouldn't be able to tell the difference between the old houses and other houses around at a glance. It's not like it's some cordoned off area, much of it is alongside a busy road/intersection. There's an area you can walk through without traffic, it is about 2 blocks or so. It would take about 5 minutes to walk the entire area.
