Happy President’s Day! New York City, being the premiere city in the United States of America, has quite a few presidential sites to call its own. Here’s a list of our favorite places in NYC with presidential ties:
Did you know that the 26th President of the United States was born in an apartment in NYC? 28 East 20th Street to be exact. The brownstone is now a museum which you can visit.
General Ulysses S. Grant, 18th President of the United States, now resides at the north end of Riverside Park in a lovely little tomb on the Hudson River. It’s also stop #28 on our Uptown Tour.
Remember when New York City was home of the US Capitol? Of course you don’t you weren’t born yet. But way back in the day, George Washington took the oath of office in Federal Hall on Wall Street.
Just kidding, NYC’s most extravagant home of the arts was not actually named after 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. In fact, no one really knows what it was named for.
