Alexander Hamilton—or GQ model?

Mr. Hamilton is depicted as a swarthy dude in this Central Park statue; the banker, soldier, and Federalist just may be our hottest Founding Father. He left his mark all over New York and died in a house on Jane Street after his infamous duel with Aaron Burr across the Hudson in Weehawken. Ouch.

Hamilton is long gone, but his Harlem home, Hamilton Grange, survives. It’s being moved from Convent Avenue to St. Nicholas Park this week, where it will reopen in 2009.

Ephemeral update: The New York Times has this article detailing the move in today’s (6/7) paper.
