To taste this neighborhood's Harlem Renaissance days, walk down tree-lined Convent Avenue, detouring onto adjacent Hamilton Terrace to see a time capsule of elegant stone row houses in mint condition. On Convent Avenue at No. 287 you'll pass former president Alexander Hamilton's Federal-style mansion; completed in 1802, it originally sat on 32 acres of land. Today it's wedged incongruously between a church and an apartment building, but it's in the process of being moved around the corner to Saint Nicholas Park.
