Overview

This national memorial managed by the National Park Service was the home of statesman and United States Founding Father Alexander Hamilton. Restored and reopened in 2011, the public can enjoy exhibits on some of Hamilton's achievements and challenges on the ground floor, a brief introductory film on his incredible rise from an orphan in the Caribbean to an indespensible molder of the early nation, and visit the furnished first floor by scheduled tour.

We stopped at Hamilton Grange National Memorial as part of our NYC Contrasts Tour. We didn’t go inside as the Memorial was closed but I was able to take some pictures...

Don't know how close you could park to the Hrange. No parking onsite. We were staying in Times Square and took taxi. There is subway.
