Dyckman House was featured in Bob Vila's A&E Network production, Guide to Historic Homes of America.
A major restoration project was undertaken in 2003, and the farmhouse re-opened to the public in Fall 2005.

The Dyckman Farmhouse is the oldest remaining farmhouse on Manhattan island, a reminder of New York City's rural past. The Dutch Colonial-style farmhouse was built by Dutch farmer William Dyckman, circa 1784, and was originally part of several 100 acres (40 ha) of farmland owned by the family. It is now located in a small park at the corner of Broadway and 204th Street in the Inwood section of the city.
The Dyckman farmhouse was transferred from Dyckman family to the city of New York in 1910, which opened it as a museum in 1916. The Dyckman farmhouse has been a National Historic Landmark since 1967.
