The Hamilton Heights/Sugar Hill plateau overlooking upper Harlem built up around the storied 18th- and 19th-century country estates of such notable figures as Eliza Jumel and Alexander Hamilton. These two historic houses still bookend the district. Starting from the Hamilton Grange, and ending at the Morris-Jumel Mansion, discover many of the stories overflowing the route in between. Highlights may include sites associated with Black Harlem's fashionable cafe society, the Old Croton Aqueduct system, the James Bailey mansion, community gardens, the City College of New York, the Dance Theatre of Harlem, vestiges of old Carmansville, the former 32nd Precinct Mounted Police Station house, Trinity Church Cemetery and much more.
