At the corner of 122nd and Riverside Drive is General Grants National Memorial Tomb, the largest mausoleum in the United States.
After retiring from government work Grant returned and settled in New York City a rich man. He was given quite the heroes welcome and became a celebrity on the social circuit of high society. An unscrupulous investor partnered with his son “Buck” and tricked the general in to personally guaranteeing some large loans to cover some huge losses. The partner fled and Grant was driven in to bankruptcy. He died virtually broke a few years later of throat cancer. His tomb, where he lies with his wife Julia, fell into to disrepair and was eventually saved by a family member.
It is open most days and has quite a few interesting artifacts, like the 11th Regiment, Indiana Volunteer Infantry National Flag along with other memorabilia.
