Alexander Hamilton spent the majority of his adult life in New York City. He attended King's College (today's Columbia University) before becoming a militiaman and then captain of a New York Artillery Company that was originally stationed in the city. After the Revolutionary War, Alexander Hamilton moved back to New York City with his new and growing family to establish a legal practice. While living in the city, Hamilton founded the Bank of New York, joined as an original member of the New York Manumission Society, began the New-York Evening Post, and acted as a trustee to reopen Columbia College. He also served as Secretary of the Treasury in New York City while it was the nation's capital through the end of 1790. New York City is also where Hamilton died and where he was buried.
