Alexander Hamilton

Besides an incredibly popular Broadway play, Alexander Hamilton is also represented in Central Park as a granite sculpture by Carl Conrads, located behind the Metropolitan Museum of Art at 82nd St. and 5th Ave. Hamilton’s son, John C. Hamilton, commissioned Conrads to sculpt this statue, which was dedicated on November 22, 1880 and donated to the city. Conrads used the bust of Hamilton created by the sculptor Giuseppe Ceracchi as a model for Hamilton’s head.
