The Alexander Hamilton Award was created to celebrate
New York and honor those individuals helping to foster the
revitalization of our nations 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 Yorks stylepassionate,
entrepreneurial, ambitious, inclusivereflected his vision
of America and shaped his politics.
