FREE Poe is the Raven Exhibition

Ray Felix presents a dark, yet whimsical tale based on the life of Edgar Allen Poe while residing in the Bronx. Based on both fact and fiction, "Poe is the Raven" gives new light and insight on the secret life of Edgar Allan Poe.

Inspired by his visits to Poe Cottage, Ray Felix became intrigued by spiritual ether surrounding the Poe property and the stories told by the long time tour guide of the Poe cottage. Felix's imprint "Bronx Heroes," takes stories from American History and transforms them into super heroes. Felix believes this allows Bronxites to appreciate everyday heroes from Bronx history and gain a greater understanding of their borough’s historically rich past.

This is a great place to visit. To be truthful, I had very little interest in Poe, but my son wanted to go, so off we went. It was such an interesting tour that it really ignited an interest in Poe altogether. The man who gave the tour was excellent. I highly recommend a visit.

Tours are given Tuesday, October 3, 2017, 9:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. and repeatsrepeats every week on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday between 10/3/2017 and 11/25/2017. Call (718) 365-5516 for more information.
