Seeking the good life of an Uptown New Yorker, A. Hamilton's last residence was the Grange House, now a US National Memorial located a block away at 141st St. & Convent Ave. He left the house to his wife and seven children, to whom he had written in 1803, the year before he died... "You see that I do not forget the Grange...nor anyone who inhabits it..."
Protected by over 3,000 neo-gothic gargoyles, the buildings around here are actual products of the city, carved from the Manhattan schist stone they got during construction of the IRT subway line. The area is truly remarkable for any fan of architecture, enclave city planning, and green spaces.
