New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission

We recently launched two new webpages at the New York City Archaeological Repository (http://archaeology.cityofnewyork.us/).  The Seneca Village webpage presents information and artifacts from the excavations of a mid-19th century African American community whose land and houses were taken through eminent domain by New York City for the creation of Central Park.  The Seneca Village Unearthed webpage presents information and artifacts associated with the Wilson family, one of the families that lived in Seneca Village at the time of the community’s demise.
