Hamilton is of course very much in ev everyone’s minds these days as his exploits as a Founding Father are celebrated in Hip Hop style on Broadway.
He now lies in the heart of Lower Manhattan in Trinity Cuurch Cemetery. His wife Eliza, a very important person during his lifetime and also on stage today in the musical about him, lies a few feet away.
Hamilton died young at 47 in 1804, after a duel with his political rival Vuce-President Aaron Burr, another New Yorker.
Trinity Church Cemetery has 3 locations but the one in which Alexander Hamilton is interred is the earliest and is located at 74 Trinity Place at Wall Street and Broadway.
It is hope Hamilton enjoys being part of the hurly burly of life because he has far from a quiet resting place. As you can see in the video there’s lots of traffic, both vehicular and on foot past where he now lies.
