"Under City Hall Park"
February 25, 2000

Map shows modern street grid, City Hall Park area (green), and approximate boundary of the eighteenth-century African Burial Ground. (North is toward the top of the map.) White rectangle denotes portion of 290 Broadway office complex modified after intact burials were found there. Excavations in 1999 during renovation of the park encountered human remains in the park's northwest and northeast corners and east of the Tweed Courthouse. (Lynda D'Amico)
