    Default Neil Patrick Harris & David Burtka's NYC Brownstone

    Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka Give a Tour of Their NYC Brownstone at the Holidays: WATCH

    DECEMBER 11, 2019 BY TOWLEROAD 9
    Architectural Digest paid a visit to the Harlem brownstone of Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka to check out their home at the holidays.
    Harris and Burtka have been in the brownstone, which was once a speakeasy for mill workers and a musical school for girls, for six years. The home features an apothecary cabinet with surprise gifts for guests, a robotic player piano, a parlor bar with monkey decor, an animatronic parrot, and an extensive art collection.


    Some of this is too wacky for my tastes, but this is the least annoying NPH has ever been to me and they seem so happy with their stuff. I like the woodwork, the bar, and the flipbook pics.

    I like the flipbook too!

    We have two trees - a crazy tree with glittery ornaments and multi-colored lights and a traditional tree with gold and red baubles and white lights. We don't have any of the other cool stuff they have though.

    I would like two trees - the family one and the formal one. But then again, I don't love my cat enough for him to terrorize two trees. lol

    I used to have at least two Christmas trees. One main one and a smaller one in my son's room. A couple times we got a little crazy and would have a tree on each floor and then one in my son's room. I loved Christmas.

    I don't like my house that cluttered, but the gifts they gave each other were really sweet and thoughtful. Was it just me or was NPH a little off in this video?

    No offense to David and his fancy downstairs parlor tree, but I like the tree in the family room way better.

    I thought NPH was less "on" in this video...he's always just SO and here he seems normalish but I might be misinterpreting that.

    I think they have too much stuff and some of it I just don't like - the taxidermy monkeys (the bar is fine without that), the parrot, NPH's favorite painting (though I don't hate on him for liking it I guess), etc.
