According to Ephemeral New York, nestled in the quiet stretch of Hamilton Heights from 141st to 144th Hamilton Terrace sits, named for this founding father, "like a secret passage lined with townhouse loveliness". The street takes its name from Hamilton Grange, Hamilton's former country house built in 1802 that currently sits atop a hill at West 141st Street. Perfectly perched on this historic block sits 40 Hamilton Terrace, a jewel in the crown!
