The Central Park Conservancy is pleased to partner with the team Envisioning Seneca Village. Through their exploration of historic maps, documents and images they have crafted a visual profile o this unique pre-park community.

We welcome you to explore an interactive 3D model of Seneca Village!

Envisioning Seneca Village (envisioningsenecavillage.github.io/) is a digital project that imagines what this significant nineteenth-century village might have looked like around the year 1855, shortly before its destruction for the building of Central Park. The project is anchored in existing and ongoing research of many historians, archaeologists, educators, and descendants about this community of which there are no surviving photos, drawings, or above-ground traces. We seek to amplify this scholarship, help visitors to learn more about the village, catalyze new research, and above all, honor the people of Seneca Village and the community they created.

This is a living project, so please visit again in the future to see updates and new features.  

Project team: Gergely Baics, Meredith Linn, Leah Meisterlin, and Myles Zhang
