Visiting Grant's Tomb
Neighborhood: Morningside Heights
Address: West 122nd St. & Riverside Dr.
More than just an old Groucho Marx punch-line, Grant's Tomb is a beautiful piece of solemnity located in Manhattan's Morningside Heights neighborhood. The tomb complex, which overlooks the Hudson, was designed by John Hemenway Duncan, who won the contest held by the Grant Monument Association in 1889. It feels like a bit of D.C. in the midst of New York.
