Get to know Hamilton Heights
Sandwiched between Morningside Heights and Washington Heights, Hamilton Heights is named after the founding father (and Broadway inspiration) Alexander Hamilton. The home he lived in for the last two years of his life, the Grange, still stands (in St. Nicholas Park, moved from its original location). While this part of Manhattan was rural farmland in Hamilton’s day, beginning at the end of the 19th century, and fueled by the extension of elevated train and subway lines, developers erected stately rowhouses and apartment buildings. The neighborhood’s trajectory mirrored Harlem’s, with many of those homes bought by affluent African-Americans especially in Sugar Hill, an enclave on the eastern side of the neighborhood. And, like Harlem today, Hamilton Heights is enjoying a new wave of interest and becoming a more diverse neighborhood in the process. The main City College campus also gives the area some of the collegiate feeling of neighboring Morningside Heights.Hamilton Heights Neighborhood Guide
