Knowing Where The Bodies Are Buried

We were thrilled to find out about the accidental discovery of skeletons beneath the

Washington Square Park.

Once upon a time, back before when rents spiked above $3,000 month in the area, the park was the site of public hangings, and, because of the convenience factor, a potter's field for cheap burials.

It's so cool to live some place and having no idea of what lies beneath your trampling feet.

And good lord, with the fight over the park's renovation getting increasingly ugly the last few years, we're just grateful those bones aren't of a more recent vintage
