Below is the latest update on the Hamilton Grange move from the National Parks Department:
Hamilton Grange Move Update – March 5, 2008
Work continues in preparation of moving Hamilton Grange National Memorial. Soil has been excavated in St. Nicholas Park and we are now down to the ledge (i.e. bedrock) of where the foundation will be laid. A certain amountof rock will now have to be removed to make way for the subbasement. Beginning today, March 5, or tomorrow, a pneumatic tool will be used tobreak up the rock, which will create some noise. Depending upon how easythe rock breaks up, this process could take anywhere from 3 to 5 days.
We appreciate your patience as we move one step closer to moving the Grange. If you have any questions, please contact the site supervisor, Albert Atchison, at 212-666-1640.
