The African Burial Ground became a National Historic Landmark in 1993. The African Burial Ground National Monument's story is both old and new: It began use in the 17th or 18th century but was only rediscovered in 1991.

Free and enslaved peoples of African descent were buried here from the late 1700s into the 1800s. The burial ground was rediscovered in the 1990s during a development project; the memorial was dedicated in 2007. Of the 10,000-20,000 individuals interred here, 419 remain.
Visit this astounding monument to 16,000 Africans from the 1600s who are interred at this solemn site.

“There's a large shopping center in downtown Brooklyn on Fulton Street. It takes about 10 mins to reach via train or taxi. ”

“Just over one block away is this park in front of City Hall. At the center is a gorgeous fountain and several lawns showcasing the Public Art Fund's "Art in the Park" with sculptural and multimedia art installations. Enjoy the sights from a park bench, watch NYC life go by and the squirrels eat right out of people's hands.”

“Outdoor "museum" made up of actual stones from Ireland, honoring the Irish famine. It's right next to the World Trade Center Memorial, too. Nice views at sunset.”
