Historic New York: Native Americans

Sunday, December 8, 2013

11:00 a.m.

Please note: This event has already taken place. Please use the Search options on the right to find upcoming events.

Ice-age glaciers, Native Americans, Dutch traders, British Redcoats, and the Underground Railroad have all left their mark on New York City. Their stories can be found in the names of our streets, our architecture, and our parks. 

Native American culture is celebrated in special programs throughout the five boroughs.

All programs are historic walking tours unless otherwise noted.  Certain popular programs have limited space and may require registration.

The area of Rockaway Beach from Beach 116th Street to Beach 109th Street will be temporarily closed as the US Army Corps of Engineers begins sand moving operations. Once work begins in this area, we expect the closure to last approximately one week.

Seba Playground will be closed to reconstruct the current Seba Tot Lot into a playground for children of all ages. The new design will enlarge the toddler area by adding a custom spray shower, seating, and two new tot play units. Additional play spaces will also be added for 5 to 12 year olds, and will include a large accessible play unit, a second spray shower and seating area. These two play areas will be joined by 15 additional swings for both age groups. The site will also feature an accessible drinking fountain, attractive plantings, and a bicycle rack.
