Top Historical Alexander Hamilton Sites in New York City

Top Historical Alexander Hamilton Sites in New York City

The Tony Award-winning Broadway musical “Hamilton” has revived travelers’ interest in the Lower Manhattan’s many colonial sites. Visit a variety of New York City landmarks to learn about the events that took place here and about the lives of America’s Founding Fathers. Here are a few places where to step into history.

The Commons

Rap to “Right Hand Man” while visiting the site where Hamilton endorsed the Sons of Liberty. Head to City Hall Park to see where General Washington’s officers read the Declaration of Independence to the troops in 1776, then stop at Bowling Green to imagine the political demonstrations that followed, when protestors pulled down a statue of King George III. 

Federal Hall

This Greek Revival building is where Alexander Hamilton saw George Washington take the oath of office to become the first President of the United States in 1789. Sit on the steps, and admire the statue of George Washington while recalling the history recounted in the songs “Cabinet Battles” and “Washington On Your Side.”

Wall Street

Continue on to the former law offices of Alexander Hamilton and his political rival, Vice President Aaron Burr. See the Bank of New York, home to the nation’s first bank bailout, which inspired the tune “Take a Break.” Then recount the rules of the “Ten Duel Commandments” en route to the Financial District’s stately Federal Reserve Bank of New York building. 

Thomas Jefferson Residence

See the apartment building that Thomas Jefferson briefly rented in 1790, where the Secretary of State and his guests, James Madison and Alexander Hamilton, hatched their federal economic plan, as recounted in the song “The Room Where It Happens.” 

Trinity Church Cemetery & St. Paul's Chapel

Walk down Broadway, in the footsteps of George and Martha Washington, to St. Paul’s Chapel, where they attended service following the first presidential inauguration. Built in 1766, this is one of the oldest buildings in New York. Finally, sing “Best of Wives and Best of Women” at Trinity Church Cemetery, where Hamilton and his wife, Eliza, were buried.
