Satchmo's in the House

The Queens, NY home where jazz giant Louis Armstrong and wife Lucille once lived will now be open to the public starting Thursday October 16, 2003. After Louis death in 1971 and Lucille’s in 1983 the house was given to the city to be administered by Queens College.

Inside the home you will find the conditions as it was being lived in by the Armstrong’s. Lucille had an eye for redecoration and the home still displays the blue tones of the kitchen, sub-zero refrigerator, and the silver paper lining the master bedroom. Louis den was left in tact including the reel-to-reel recorder where he taped hundreds of hours of conversations between himself and band members spinning tales of the road and many jokes.
