If you're interested in visiting a historic site while visiting New York, look no further than the Hamilton Grange National Memorial. This historical site was once the home of one of America?s founding fathers, Alexander Hamilton. Born and raised in the West Indies during the mid 18th century, Hamilton came to New York in 1772 to study at King?s College, known now as Columbia University.  Alexander Hamilton served the Continental Army as an officer and rose through the ranks to become one of George Washington?s most trusted aides during the American Revolutionary War. After the war, Hamilton played a key role in shaping America through his co-writing of the Federalist Papers that helped gain support for the Constitution. He served as the first secretary of the Treasury and was the architect for many of the financial institutions we regularly rely on today. Hamilton commissioned John McComb Jr. to design a Federal Style country home on the sprawling 32-acre estate where ?The Grange? was built in upper Manhattan. The home was completed in 1802 and gained its name from Alexander Hamilton?s ancestral home in Scotland. Hamilton only lived in this home for two years before being killed in the infamous duel in which he lost his life to Vice President Aaron Burr. Hamilton?s adventurous life has also been brought to the Broadway Stage in one of the most beloved musicals in years with Hamilton. The Broadway Show is a rich depiction of Alexander Hamilton?s life with the musical twist to keep the audience entranced. The Broadway showing of Hamilton is very popular, so if you wish to see it in person we suggest planning well in advance!


If you?re a fan of early 20th-Century architecture and historic financial institutions, we recommend checking out the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. The 22-floor, sandstone, and limestone HQ of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York strikes a stark contrast with the modern steel and glass skyscrapers of Manhattan?s financial district. The Federal Reserve Bank of New York offers guided tours that allow guests to see the famous Vault and other exhibitions throughout the bank. Unfortunately, tours are limited to 25 guests at a time, so we advise booking in advance to ensure you have a spot!


If you're a foodie with a sweet tooth and love of dairy, we definitely urge you to check out the Ample Hills Creamery in Brooklyn. This 15,000 square foot ice cream factory is the largest of its kind in New York City and produces up to 500,000 gallons of deliciousness every day! Ample Hills Brooklyn also offers self-guided tours that allow guests to learn about how they develop new ice cream flavors and learn about the creation of fan favorites like Ooey Gooey Butter Cake, Peppermint Patty and the location exclusive flavor, The Hook. This particular flavor was recently created to pay homage to the Dutch settlers that lived in Red Hook, Brooklyn, and features ?burnt sugar ice cream, house-made stroopwafels, and chunks of salted fudge.? Yum!
