Mark, my co-worker in the Listings Dept of RDNY.com, likes NYC history as much as I do. I guess he got tired of my fascination with The Grange and he sent me an email with a link to another old house in Manhattan to remind me that Alexander Hamilton’s house is not all that. This is a little-known old house on the east side on Manhattan. It’s called Mount Vernon and it is little known to me and hence (or do I want thus?), its obscurity.
This is where I get confused. I know George Washington named his plantation in Virginia Mount Vernon, and I know there’s a Mount Vernon in Westchester, but why is there a Mount Vernon in Manhattan?
Mark has some explaining to do.
