Seneca Village Panoramic Scene

A panoramic scene that connects three panoramas that include the sites where Seneca Village was (now included in Central Park). The first centers around West 85th Street and Park Drive. The second, looking southeast over a rise into another section which is bordered by trees and small hills. The third is to the right of the second, also SE, but more S. Look for the "hot spots" that link the three panoramas

Resources for learning about Seneca Village
.. The pictures are a combination of the current Seneca Site located between 82nd and 89th Streets and Seventh and Eighth Avenues (closest cross street now being Central Park West) and images from an historical fiction story about the village called, "The Lost Village Of Central Park." The current images show scientists and their students doing a Geoarchaeological study

Talking at the Slavery In New York exhibit that was at the NY Historical Society.

Part of a tour I found on youtube of Seneca Village in Central Park. It was done by folks from the Central Park Conservancy
