History of Grymes Hill

Home to both St. John's University and Wagner College, Grymes Hill has managed to keep over-development at bay even as the island's population has soared. Because of those efforts by the neighborhood's residents, Grymes Hill has held onto its reputation of the being the one of the most picturesque spots in Greater St. George. During its storied history, Grymes Hill has been a center of beer production before the Prohibition, which took place in a series of caves inside the hill. Now, the neighborhood is the island's hub of higher education, as well as being home to some of the island's finest, most historically significant homes.
