Alexander Hamilton Grange is believe to be the only home that Alexander Hamilton ever owned, from 1755-1804.
By the time he bought the land and built the grange, he had already fought int he American Revolution, helped draft the Constitution and get it ratified, and served as the Secretary of the Treasury.
Best part of St. Nicholas Park is coming up… let’s walk up to Alexander Hamilton Grange!

The green splendor of St. Nicholas Park in Hamilton Heights and Manhattanville.
St. Nicholas Park in Hamilton Heights and Manhattanville is one of my favorite parks in NYC. It’s borders the City College of New York (photos to come) and is home to a historic museum (more photos to come). What’s really cool about this park is that you can actually BBQ here and have a real picnic in the middle of the city!
It’s hard to see it’s bright red door in this photo, but St. James Presbyterian Church in Hamilton Heights has been around since 1895, but moved to this location in 1927 and a former pastor’s wife founded Harlem School of the Arts in the previous picture.
After the conclusion of the 32-mile Great Saunter hike around the waterfront of Manhattan, we are continuing where we left off in Hamilton Heights.
Harlem School of the Arts at 645 St. Nicholas Ave offers courses in music, dance, theatre and visual arts.
Governors Island Ferry Waiting Room…
And this concludes the Great Saunter 2013. All 32 miles.
Who wants to do it next year?
