National Park Service, New York.
The final resting place of President Ulysses S. Grant and his wife, Julia, is the largest mausoleum in North America. It testifies to a people’s gratitude for the man who ended the bloodiest conflict in American history as Commanding General of the Union Army and then, as President of the United States, strove to heal a nation after a civil war and make rights for all citizens a reality.
General Grant National Memorial is located in Riverside Park, on the upper west-side of Manhattan. The entrance to the mausoleum is between north-bound and south-bound Riverside Drive, near the intersection of West 122nd Street. The visitor center is located to the west, across south-bound Riverside Drive. Street parking is available but can be very hard to find. The area is well-served with both bus and subway, by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority of New York (http://www.mta.info/).
