Recommendation by Lemi
Hamilton only ever owned one home, the Grange (named after his grandfather’s property in Scotland), while the rest they rented. Their uptown estate is now preserved as the Hamilton Grange National Memorial. Hamilton only got to enjoy it for two years before he died. Roam through recreated rooms and you’ll get an intimate look behind what were once closed doors. Join a tour (arrive half an hour before 10:00AM, 11:00AM, 2:00PM, or 4:00PM for a slot) or explore the exhibits by yourself. Afterwards, stroll along 141th Street in Hamilton Heights, Harlem; try not to tear up as you listen to “It’s Quiet Uptown.” The musical’s Hamilton fulfilled his promise to Eliza (in “Helpless”) and got them that “little place in Harlem” in real life.
