Alexander Hamilton, the unlikely star of a hit Broadway musical, will take center stage again this weekend when the Real Estate Board of New York (REBNY) hosts it’s 2016 Uptown Open House Expo.
The Founding Father’s legacy is built into Harlem where his home, Hamilton Grange, still stands today.
This weekend, New Yorkers can learn about the history of the neighborhood, its buildings and architecture; and explore, through a self-guided tour, dozens of the hottest, exclusive Harlem co-op, condo, and townhouse listings on the market.
During the free event hosted by the REBNY’s Upper Manhattan Committee, attendees will hear about Hamilton and his neighborhood from historian Kevin Draper of New York Historical Tours, enjoy a free breakfast, receive a neighborhood guide with details on available listings in Harlem, and consult with REBNY’s expert residential brokers on the home buying process.
They will also hear from community leaders and real estate industry experts before viewing the open houses. Speakers will include Curtis Archer, president of the Harlem Community Development Corporation, Angela Hancock, Founder of Experience Harlem, Brian Phillips, Douglas Elliman Real Estate, co-Chair of REBNY’s Upper Manhattan Committee and Charlie Lewis, Warburg Realty, co-Chair of REBNY’s Upper Manhattan Committee.
