Hamilton Grange House Moving, Manhattan, NY – Part 1

Views:14481|Rating:5.00|View Time:6:18Minutes|Likes:24|Dislikes:0
Built in the 1802, this was the home of the famous founding father and Secretary of Treasury, Alexander Hamilton. The building weighed just over 300 ton with its brick filled insulation frame walls and four large fireplaces. Wolfe House and Building Movers started this move in May 2008. The most challenging part of the job was moving the stone porch, which jutted out in front of the house from the neighboring church, removing any chances of having the house moved out the front of the property. With the back also not an option, Wolfe House Movers decided to go up and over the stone porch. The house was lifted 32′ up into the air, slowly slid over the porch and was moved out over the street. It was then jacked back down just above the street, set onto hydraulic powered dollies and moved around the corner, down the hill and into St. Nicholas Park about a city block away. The move went off without a hitch to the delight of the National Park Service, Wolfe House Movers and the surrounding crowd of New Yorkers and other people who showed up for the amazing house move. The entire move took almost two months worth of work after which the restoration began. The building was later opened as a National Museum sometime in 2010.

St Paul’s Chapel And Cemetery in Lower Manhattan

Views:2799|Rating:5.00|View Time:3:55Minutes|Likes:14|Dislikes:0
St Paul’s Chapel attracts thousands of tourists and visitors annually in New York City’s Lower Manhattan area.

St. Paul’s Chapel, is an Episcopal chapel located on Broadway, between Fulton and Vesey Streets. It is the oldest surviving church building in Manhattan.

George Washington, along with members of the United States Congress, worshipped at St. Paul’s Chapel on his Inauguration Day, on April 30, 1789.

The chapel contains several monuments and memorials including George Washington’s original pew and a Neo-Baroque sculpture called “Glory” designed by Pierre L’Enfant, who designed Washington, D.C.

The rear of St. Paul’s Chapel faces the east side of the World Trade Center site. After the attack on September 11, 2001, which led to the collapse of the twin towers of the World Trade Center, St. Paul’s Chapel served as a place of rest and refuge for recovery workers at the WTC site.

For eight months, hundreds of volunteers worked 12 hour shifts around the clock, serving meals, making beds, counseling and praying with fire fighters, construction workers, police and others.

“Healing Hearts and Minds”, an exhibit inside the chapel, consisting of a red chasuble covered with police and firefighter patches sent from all over the world. A British Bobby’s helmet is on top.
The church survived without even a broken window. Church history declares it was spared by a miracle sycamore on the northwest corner of the property that was hit by debris. The tree’s root has been preserved in a bronze memorial by sculptor Steve Tobin. While the church’s organ was badly damaged by smoke and dirt, the organ has been refurbished and is in use again.[6]
