Alexander Hamilton house is moved

I hadn't heard about this before, but Alexander Hamilton's house was just moved down the street into Harlem's St. Nicholas Park. Back in the day, it was a quiet country home. Now ... seems Harlem has changed a little over the years. Moving the house to the park will restore a little hint of its original character.

The article mentions the project being fought in court. This article explains that it's just a dispute over which way the house should face, not an attempt to halt the move altogether. This NYT article also contains more information.

Wouldn't Hamilton be amazed?
