Did you know that the original Federal Hall served as the United States’ first capitol building, where Congress met and George Washington was inaugurated as the nation’s first president? Or that the City was the site of important Revolutionary War battles, including a particularly bloody one at current day Green-Wood Cemetery? The founding fathers’ ties to the City are strong, and now’s a perfect time to discover them for yourself.

In the lead-up to the 2016 presidential election, cultural institutions throughout the city are celebrating important figures from early American history—especially Alexander Hamilton, who owes his resurgence in popularity to a certain Broadway musical. Click on the events below for some of the best ways to join the fun.
