Resolution Honoring the Harlem African Burial Ground

Senator Jose M. Serrano today co-sponsored a Senate Resolution (J629), introduced by Senator Bill Perkins, commemorating Harlem’s Historic African Burial Ground in recognition of Black History Month. The burial ground was located where the MTA’s 126th Street Bus Depot in East Harlem now stands, and occupied a quarter acre lot on the original Elmendorf Dutch Reformed Church grounds on First Avenue between 126th and 127th Streets. Many community leaders fear the historic burial ground might be lost or defiled due to ongoing work expanding the Willils Avenue bridge and a plan to entirely rebuild a bus depot located at that location.
