This larger-than-life-size statue depicts Alexander Hamilton (1757-1804), the eminent statesmen for the fledgling nation of the United States. The monument, located along Central Park's East Drive at 83rd Street near the Metropolitan Museum of Art, is unusual in that it is carved entirely of granite. Hamilton's grandson John C. Hamilton donated the piece to the City in 1880.

Dedication, Nov 20, 1880
