Neighborhood Description

One would never guess that crossing into Hamilton Heights is actually setting foot onto a vast estate--35 acres to be exact--land appropriated by the statesman, war hero, diplomat, and one of America’s founding fathers, the great Alexander Hamilton.

His affinity to the area is clear. Hamilton actually studied at King’s College--now Columbia University--prior to becoming the first United States Secretary of the Treasury under George Washington (one of only many esteemed positions he held). The actual building he lived in is now referred to as the Hamilton Grange National Monument, and in efforts to best preserve it and put it on view to the public, it has been relocated several times. The building now sits in St. Nicholas Park, and houses a museum and a memorial to our founding father.

Directly next to Hamilton’s home is the The College of the City of New York, affectionately referred to by New Yorkers as CCUNY. Once an area almost entirely inhabited by African Americans, since the late nineties increased gentrification and Hispanic immigration to the states has actually put black people in the minority in Hamilton Heights. In the last fifteen years, property values in this area have tripled, as developers and those seeking brownstone living at affordable prices have taken an interest in the area and crime- fighting efforts have increased. In 2011, Hamilton Heights gained even more attention when Columbia decided to put a satellite campus of the university directly underneath it. The first phase of the campus, including Columbia’s prestigious business school and a science center, is scheduled to be complete in 2015, and it will undoubtedly bring even more revitalization to the area, including a growth in retail stores and dining options.

While St. Nicholas’s park leaves something to be desired, a more attractive option in the heights is Riverbank State Park, accessible by two footbridges. Riverbank boasts stunning views of the Hudson River and houses recreational facilities fit for the entire family. Aspiring figure skaters spin across the outdoor skating rink in the winter, and during the warmer months, the weekends are filled with people enjoying the soccer, baseball, and football fields, basketball and tennis courts, and even an indoor/outdoor pool. To add to the festive atmosphere, a Merry Go Round twirls around, spinning kids with delight right on the banks of the Hudson River.
