Seven women from our book club rented a mini bus for the hour ride to Harlem to see Hamilton’s Grange after reading and loving the book My Dear Hamilton. What a disappointment! Upon climbing the stairs we arrived on the main floor to learn there...More

We visited with two children (11 and 14) and they found it fascinating. It is a small museum and we spent an hour watching the video, reading the material in the visitor centre, and visiting the period rooms upstairs on a self-guided tour. The children...More

Very worthwhile visit, tucked away in a nice neighborhood in upper Manhattan, with an informative short video. Also very close to the CUNY campus, which is beautiful and worth a visit in itself.

The upstairs rooms were not open, which was a disappointment. The highlight was the mock debate staged by two historians in period attire, portraying Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson. They captured the period, the issues and the respectful adversarial relationship the two maintained.

This was a fascinating tour of Alexander Hamilton’s home. We were lucky enough to arrive in time for a guided tour although at other times it appears you are able to self-guide. Tour included an opportunity to watch the video of them moving the house!...More

Small site but very interesting. Hamilton was a very intelligent guy who doesn't get all the credit he deserves. The tour guide helped to change that. The tour was interesting. Especially the part about how the house was moved. Daily guided tours. Free! Many places...More

I was surprised at how much we learned from visiting Hamilton Grange. I truly did not realize how much Alexander Hamilton influenced the development of the United States, nor how much disagreement there was among the founding fathers. The site itself, the Hamilton family's summer...More

As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has
played a vital role in the history of New York City.
Today, the neighborhood is as vibrant as ever as new
businesses and developments go up next to local
institutions. The heart of the neighborhood is
bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and
historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with
big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and
