4. Gracie Mansion

The fire place which Hamilton died in front of at the Bayard House was eventually moved to Gracie Mansion on the Upper East Side of Manhattan in the current residence of the New York City Mayor. Archibald Gracie, the original owner of Gracie Mansion had a long history with Hamilton as the two were very good friends and business partners. In 1801, Gracie hosted at his house a meeting led by Hamilton which would lead to the founding of the New York Evening Post (today known as the New York Post), one of the oldest newspapers in the country.
