NYC Skeletons

Your city is old when ‘found a graveyard’ isn’t that surprising of a note during construction.

While upgrading a the water main, construction workers found the brick roof of a tomb. Shortly after, over dozen skulls skeletons and coffins were found on site. Principal investiagtor Alyssa Loorya says the many coffins date back to the 18th century.

The burial vault seems to be built beneath a potter’s feild for victims of yellow fever near the Greenwich Village. Another theory is that the vault is a Presbyterian burial ground. No news if hauntings are more or less likely compared to Indianan burial grounds.

The site is currently under review as a possible historic site.
