Riverside Park Virtual Tour

2) Grant's Tomb

Ulysses S. Grant, 18th President of the United States, and his wife Julia occupy the most substantial monument in Riverside Park, designed by John Duncan and finished in 1892. Surrounding Grant's Tomb, you'll see some popular local folk art that contrasts strikingly with the Tomb's severity.
