The tomb, the largest mausoleum in North America, was completed in 1897, and is located near Hudson River at the Upper West Side of Manhattan, New York. To reach the memorial by subway, take either the 7th Avenue-Broadway No. 1 or No. 9 subway train. Both stop at West 116th Street Station on Broadway, two blocks east and six blocks south of Grant's Tomb.
