Let us never know what old age is. Let us know the happiness time brings, not count the years. Ausonius (Picture taken at #hamiltongrange ) #teamcanon #hamilton #foundingfathers #nyhistory
It’s always great to run and explore parts of Manhattan you usually pass by underground on the subway. Today I especially appreciated the ability to run freely and safely. If you can’t fly, then run. 🏰 [6.2 miles] - - - #citycollege #seenonmyrun #nyrr #resolvetorun #nycruns #irunnyc #runninggram #strava #stravarun #runhappy #halfmarathontraining #triathlontraining #instarunner #doingthings #runhappy #seenonmyrun #runtoinspire #running #runwithme #runtoinspire #runtoexplore #explorenyc #runningculture #runningcommunity #womenrunning #hamiltonheights #exploreeverything #newyork_ig #hamiltongrange #stnicholaspark #mlkday #mlkweekend

Is amazing that they relocated this house 3 times! And it looks brand new! They did a great job during the renovations. #hamiltongrange #foundingfathers #nyhistory

More #LateNightHamilton - The entry and the dining room of The Grange, Alexander Hamilton's "sweet project" of a house in upper Manhattan. A copy of the bust of Hamilton made by Giuseppe Ceracchi either stands guard, or welcomes guests. Guess it depended on whether you were a Democratic-Republican or a Federalist. ;) #IElizaHamilton #FanofHamilton #Hamilton #AlexanderHamilton #HamiltonGrange #elizahamilton #HappybirthdayAlexanderHamilton @restorethefirstbank #restorethefirstbank
I wish I could say that visiting Hamilton Grange with my class on a spontaneous field trip last week was going to be my coolest Hamilton experience of December, but it’s not. It just happens to be winning tickets to the @hamiltonmusical ! • • • • #theater #hamilton #hamiltongrange #itsquietuptown #musical #musicaltheater #fieldtrip #americanhistory #thehousewhereithappened ned #americanrevolution #revolutionarywar #finally #yes #iwon #winner #lottery #hamiltonlottery #hamiltonlotterywinner #teacher #teachersofinstagram #teacherlife
It’s quiet uptown . . . #hamiltonmusical #hamiltongrange #lolicried
Checking out a site in Harlem to do some work at in the Spring #hamiltongrange #141st
The best part about having guests is learning more about my city! This is Alexander Hamilton’s House. It’s the only home he ever owned, built as a country house near what is now 141st street. It was finished in 1802 and lived there for two years before he died. They recently moved the house to its current home in St. Nicholas Park. We were short on time, so we missed the tour but I’ll probably be back one day! #hamilton #hamiltonmusical #hamiltongrange #alexanderhamilton #harlem #historichomes #nychistory #nyparks #georgianhouse

More #LateNightHamilton - A summery view of The Grange, Alexander Hamilton's "sweet project" of a house in upper Manhattan. Miraculously none of the modern buildings that now crowd around the little house, relocated to a park, are visible here. @restorethefirstbank #restorethefirstbank #IElizaHamilton #FanofHamilton #Hamilton #AlexanderHamilton #HamiltonGrange #latenightHamilton #elizahamilton #HappybirthdayAlexanderHamilton More about my visit to The Grange in my blog post: http://susanhollowayscott.com/blog/2017/8/6/visiting-the-grange-eliza-alexander-hamiltons-sweet-project-of-a-home
There’s a 99% chance i won’t make it to THE Room where it happens, but I did get to see a room and a tomb where some things happened. #Hamilton #HamiltonGrange #nationalpark #tourist #quietuptown
Hamilton Grange, it's quiet uptown #hamiltongrange #hamilton #nps #newyork #newyorkcity #ny #nyc
I love a good museum shop, and uptown's got many (the expanded and relocated @schomburgshop is a great place to start). This week's holiday gift guide highlights just some of the many items that caught my eye. Tap the link or stay tuned for even more 🎁 ideas next week!
One year ago we were in NYC to see @hamiltonmusical and @dearevanhansen ! We also fit in several Hamilton and Lafayette history sites. #hamiltonthemusical #dearevanhansen #trinitychurch #frauncestavern #hamiltongrange
Scouts got to visit Hamilton Grange National Memorial (Alexander Hamilton's home) in Upper Manhattan, right in our neighborhood!

The Battery and the busy harbor, c. 1880. In the 1690s, a defensive wall was built next to Fort George. It was expanded in the 1730s and again in the 1760s, and called the Grand Battery, although locals just called it The Battery. In 1807, construction began on a fort built atop an artificial island 200 feet offshore, only accessible via a narrow causeway. Designed by John McComb Jr. (who designed #GracieMansion , City Hall, and #HamiltonGrange ) and Jonathan Williams (who also designed the East Battery, later called Castle Williams, on #GovernorsIsland ), it was initially known as the West Battery. The fort never saw any action, and in 1815 it was named after Mayor and future Governor DeWitt Clinton. The #military used it until 1822, and two years later it was expanded and converted into Castle Garden, an #entertainment palace that included a beer hall, restaurant, exhibition space, and theater. For years, the city had been steadily expanding its shoreline, and by the 1850s Castle Garden was no longer on an island, as it was physically a part of Manhattan. In 1855, it was converted into the city's Emigrant Landing Depot. Over 8 million immigrants passed through it over 35 years; the experience was captured in the Yiddish word Kesselgarten, which described a chaotic and confusing place. The Government took over control of immigration in 1890, and Castle Garden was transferred to the Parks Department and converted into the New York Aquarium, with interiors done by McKim, Mead & White. Opened in 1896, it remained there until 1941, when it moved to the #BronxZoo , and later to Coney Island. The old fort was targeted by #RobertMoses , who dismissed it as an "ugly wart" and wanted to demolish it for an anchorage to the Brooklyn-Battery Bridge. Happily, the fort was saved, becoming a national monument in 1946 and a #NYClandmark in 1965. It has since been restored to its original appearance. A section of the old Battery wall, uncovered during #archaeological excavations, is displayed inside the fort (another section is on display in the #SouthFerry #subway station) #NYC #BatteryPark #CastleClinton #TBT #history #NYChistory #DiscoveringNYC

“It’s quiet uptown”...toured Hamilton’s home. #hamiltongrange #alexanderhamilton #alexandeliza #hamilton #nyc #thenewyorkchick
what do you do when bored on thanksgiving break? Travel up and down manhattan of course! | my first stop was to visit the Hamilton Grange, where Alexander Hamilton and his family resided “outside” of the city | the floors were 215 years old and only fifteen people were allowed in at a time due to the delicate condition! | it was crazy to think what the world must have looked like back when Hamilton walked through that house in the very same rooms I passed through | #hamiltongrange
Got to see the house Alexander built for his family! #hamilton #grange #hamiltongrange
These three are not throwing away their shot! #hamiltongrange #hamilton #hamkids #eyesup
Historic Hamilton Heights!! This home is amazing. Some of the most beautiful homes are tucked away in this enclave, close to shopping, parks, restaurants, and transportation. https://www.perchwell.com/show/listing/gkl
Spent the afternoon with my son in his #hamiltonheights neighborhood. The building ravaged by fire on Friday is barely a block from his apartment building. #hamiltongrange #stnicholaspark #citycollegeofnewyork #loveisthespiceoflife
