   General Grant did indeed live on 66th St. in NYC.

   Near the end of his life, when he was struggling to complete his memoirs, the family moved to Mount MacGregor, where he could be made more comfortable. He was visited by many notables, including his old friend, former Confederate General Simon Bolivar Buckner, and his new wife.

   He managed to finish his manuscript only a few days before the end of his life. The memoirs were a great success, and restored the family's fortune.
