Almost fell over when I saw this. My husband & I live in Florida & visit our daughter & son-in-law in Queens regularly. We took ourselves on a “hike” to visit Louie Armstrong’s Home. So taken by his performances as a child & danced to “It’s a Wonderful World” at our son’s wedding. Loved the tour & excited to find pictures of this iconic home and man on Houzz. Thanks for the memories.

The living room looks cozy for a small circle of friends. Classic!

Oh my goodness! I loved Satchmo and had no idea his home was open to the public. Mrs. Armstrong had incredible taste, way ahead of the times. That décor still works today! Thank you, once again, Houzz for making me aware of yet another historic home worth visiting.
