BCA is proud to have been a part the team for the interior and exterior architectural restoration and rehabilitation of Hamilton Grange National Memorial, which began in 2010 after the historic home had been moved it its new site in St. Nicholas Park. #Repost @nationalparkservice ・・・ Ten years ago (June 2008), The Grange; the historic house of first Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton, officially known as Hamilton Grange National Memorial, was lifted 30 feet in the air and moved roughly a block to its current location. . The move and extensive #restoration which followed was quite extraordinary. The project completed a plan, which had existed for some 30-plus years, to both move the house to a more open, country-like setting, which the home had originally and to extensively restore the house to the way the Hamilton family would have known it. . #HamiltonGrange National Memorial is in Saint Nicholas Park in Manhattan. It is located at 414 West 141st Street, between Convent Avenue and St. Nicholas Avenue. . #findyourpark #exploreamerica #nationalparkservice #newyorkcity #hamilton #alexanderhamilton #historichomes #preservation #architecture #bcausa #bcanews #bcanyc #architecturalconservation

Alexander Hamilton’s writing desk and office at his uptown home the Grange. After his career as George Washington’s aide-de-camp he went back to being a practicing lawyer. He moved his family uptown not just because it was quiet, it was to keep them safe. Summers in New York City were dangerous because of diseases like Yellow fever, the same disease that killed his mother. This is the writing desk in his home office he would take with him into the city when he was meeting clients. The green paint in this room is the most expensive paint in the entire house as green was a luxury color at the time. This room still has 3 books originally owned by Hamilton. ##### #hamiltongrange #alexanderhamilton #nationalhistoricsite #nps #nps101 #itsquietuptown #history #nyc
I got to see the Grange today and it was kind of a totally surreal experience. I can’t believe Hamilton actually lived in there??? #imahistorynerd #andimayhavefreakedoutabit #alexanderhamilton #hamiltongrange

Last week was a week of doing things outside the norm. Before Gov Ball we did a detour to the Hamilton Grange. The home of one of our most famous founding fathers. We were enchanted to see this child who couldn’t have been older than 5 with her grandfather in full colonial dress, according to her she was dressed as Eliza Schuyler Hamilton. According to this little Eliza she is a fan of Alexander Hamilton and judging by the amount of American history she knew I believe her. A musical has opened the eyes to a child about American History. #hamilton #hamiltonmusical @lin_manuel__ @hamiltonmusical #hamiltongrange #harlem #americanhistory #foundingfathers #federalstyle #lovethelifeyoulive #detour #historic #nyc #nycblogger #newyorkcity #lovemycity #nationalpark #colonial #lifeblog #elizaschuyler #elizahamilton

Alexander Hamilton was an immigrant from the West Indies who became a Revolutionary War hero and the most influential cabinet member in history* as the Secretary of the Treasury for President Washington. This is his house in "the Harlem Woods" where he was living when the US Vice President killed him. So if you don't know, now you know. 🇺🇲 🇺🇲 #🇺🇲 🇺🇲 🇺🇲 *A sign in the visitor center has an attribution for that quote, but I forgot. #alexanderhamilton #hamiltongrange #findyourpark #nationalparksusa #nationalparkmagazine #nationalparkphotography #nationalparklife #nationalparkgeek #smallparksaturday #mappinners #newyork #pictureourparks #harlem

My American Historical Theatre debate with Alexander Hamilton (Eben Kuhns) at @FederalHallnsp was well attended and received yesterday. In addition to the numerous citizens in attendance, some 55 young students from a local school joined us, not only as spectators but as participants in the conversation. This young man acquitted himself exceptionally well . . . AHT will present two more free, public debates between Mr. Hamilton and me on Saturday 30 June 2018, at Hamilton Grange National Memorial, thanks to @nationalparkservice . One of the debates will be for young audiences, and the other will be for adult audiences. We will publish the specific schedule as soon as it is established. . . For more information: www.ahtheatre.org You can follow “American Historical Theatre” on Facebook, and also on Twitter @ah_theatre . . . Portrait by Emily Nadal . . . The clothing I am wearing was crafted by the talented hand of Kim Hanley, Executive Director of American Historical Theatre. . . . #ThomasJefferson #AlexanderHamilton #foundingfathers #debate #reenactment #findyourpark #HamiltonGrange #nationalparks @Stefaniemdc @goparks @americanhistoricaltheatre
In 1889 Hamilton Grange, an early example in 1802 of what became known as the Federalist style, was acquired by St. Lukes’ Episcopal Church and moved from its original hilltop location 250 feet away to Convent Avenue just north of the church. Three of its four sides had porches that were removed during the relocation, and the Grange was hemmed in a tight fit between the church and an apartment building. Despite becoming part of the National Parks system, and its employment by St. Luke’s as a chapel, it gradually fell into genteel shabbiness. That changed beginning in June 2008 when National Parks (very gently) moved the Grange to its third location, an empty part of the northern end of St. Nicholas Park across from Hamilton Terrace. Parks then spent $14.5M to rehabilitate the building, adding new porches that had been stripped away during the first move. The Grange reopened to the public in 2011. Much more was done than that — moldings, mantels and ornamentation were reproduced to 1802 specifications and reintroduced, and original furniture, including pieces owned by Hamilton himself including a pianoforte seen here, were added. Other tables, chairs, beds etc are careful reproductions. #workscited 1.http://forgotten-ny.com/2012/12/hamilton-grange/ #allaboutthebigapple #hamiltongrange #alexanderhamilton #hamilton #grange #nationalpark #st .lukes #museum #hamiltonterrace #westharlem #citycollege #historicalsociety #nyctram #restoration #newyorkcity #manhattan #nychistory #nyc #nychistory #historiclandmark #historichouse #historichousenyc #historicnyc #citylandmark #newyork_instagram #newyork_ig #newyorkinstagram #ilovenewyork #newyorkig . . .

This morning, we visited the Hamilton Grange. Say hi, Alex! After lunch in town, we got some citibikes intending to ride across the Brooklyn Bridge, but of course it was a teeming mass of humanity, so we rode across the Manhattan bridge instead. What a gorgeous day! ☀️ 🚲 #hamiltongrange #Brooklyn #bridge #skyline #nyc
I am not throwing away my shot. #hamilton #alexanderhamilton #hamiltongrange #harlem #nyc
This is Alexander Hamilton’s house, The Grange, in Upper Manhattan (Hamilton Heights). It’s where he moved with his family after his first son died. I have had the privilege of teaching in the gothic building behind it (photo left) for 5 years at @ccnycitycollege. When I pass this house, it always makes me think about how good people have to keep striving to make the world, and this country, a better place than we found it. Write like you’re running out of time. Love deeply even if you’ve lost. Don’t give up your shot. #alexanderhamilton #hamiltongrange #hamiltonheights #inspiration #nyc #newyorkcity #seeyourcity
This beautiful building is St. James church right across the street from the Hamilton Grange in New York. I didn't go to New York for this building, but I couldn't help but to photograph it! . . . . . . . #photography #amateurphotography #buildings #church #stjameschurch #newyork #nyc #hamiltongrange
It’s quiet uptown. #hamiltongrange #nationalpark
Exploring the #moma , pizza, the #hamiltongrange national memorial, and taking in a (cold) #yankees game!
They had this bust of Lafayette at the Hamilton Grange...I just couldn't get over how expressive and ghostly it was. Absolutely beautiful #hamilton #hamiltongrange #lafayette #bust #alexanderhamilton #marquisdelafayette
