Description

Village Voice's Description

Who is buried in Grant's Tomb? Technically, no one. The tomb is in a bit of disrepair, and needs a visitors center, but it is still a monument to one of the more misunderstood and important men in New York and American history. And it is situated in beautiful Riverside Park, so what's not to like?

Hours: Daily 9am-5pm except major holidays

    I took a friend of mine there, it was our first time ever going inside. it's was like any tomb, quiet& cold. The crepy thing was the actual sarcophagus tha had fresh flowers on it. The cool thing was that it's in Harlem.

    Watch the Ken Burns Civil War documentary series in its entirety before visiting this site and you will appreciate it a great deal more.
