Alexander Hamilton Award

The Alexander Hamilton Award was created to celebrate New York and honor those individuals helping to foster the revitalization of our nation’s cities. We chose to name the award after Hamilton because, like the Manhattan Institute, he was a fervent proponent of commerce and civic life, and he believed the health of the nation hinged upon vibrant cities. He was also the quintessential New Yorker. Hamilton went to university, joined the army, and practiced law in New York. His last home stands in Harlem; his grave is at the crown of Wall Street across from the bank he started; the newspaper he founded is still shaking things up. New York’s style—passionate, entrepreneurial, ambitious, inclusive—reflected his vision of America and shaped his politics.

Tuesday, May 8th

On May 8, 2007, the Manhattan Institute hosted the annual Alexander Hamilton Award Dinner. The black-tie fundraiser raised over $1.3 million dollars for the Manhattan Institute.

Recipients of the prestigious award included the Honorable Edward I. Koch, 105th Mayor of New York, and K. Rupert Murdoch, Chairman of News Corp. We are proud to celebrate their contributions to our great city.
