African Burial Ground
As a monument commemorating the burial site of over 15,000 free and enslaved Africans, the African Burial Ground in New York City stands as a reminder of the sacrifices made for, and the origin of, much of the city’s early development. The site commemorates an important part of history, and reminds the wider world of some of the experiences people of African descent had to suffer in America. Located just a few metres from the New York City Department of Education and City Hall, it is a daily reminder to the city’s employees that humility and humanity are essential for growth.
- Learn all about the many contributions made by people of African descent at the African Burial Ground Memorial, where park rangers offer tours and lectures; check the website for dates and times, as schedules adapt to weather conditions.
- Explore the four exhibit areas inside the memorial in New York City, which include a theatre, bookstore, and educational presentations as well as commemorative artwork.
- Walk the wider area around the burial area; New York City Hall is only steps away, as is the serene and relaxing Thomas Paine Park, the Heartland Brewery, and Imagination Playground.
Because of its location on the lower side of New York City, the African Burial Ground is extremely accessible. New York’s public transportation is super-efficient, with a web of inexpensive network of buses and trains. The subway is the best method to reach the monument; the closest station is at Chambers Street, it services the J and Z trains. Also, close by is the City Hall Station at the Brooklyn Bridge, with trains 4, 5, and 6. Though the subway is the most popular form of transit, taxis are also readily available, if more expensive.
