interesting NY Times article: Found: Old Wall in New York, and It's Blocking the Subway By PATRICK McGEEHAN Published: December 8, 2005 Three weeks after the Metropolitan Transportation Authority started digging a subway tunnel under Battery Park, the project hit a wall. A really old wall. Possibly the oldest wall still standing in Manhattan. The top of an old wall was discovered by workers digging a new subway tunnel under Battery Park. It was a 45-foot-long section of a stone wall that archaeologists believe is a remnant of the original battery that protected the Colonial settlement at the southern tip of the island. Depending on which archaeologist you ask, it was built in the 1760's or as long ago as the late 17th century. Either way, it would be the oldest piece of a fortification known to exist in Manhattan and the only to survive the Revolutionary War period, said Joan H. Geismar, president of the Professional Archaeologists of New York City. "To my knowledge, it's the only remain of its kind in Manhattan," Ms. Geismar said. "It's a surviving Colonial military structure. That's what makes it unique." Among the items found around the wall are a well-preserved halfpenny coin dated 1744 and shards of smoking pipes and Delft pottery, said Amanda Sutphin, director of archaeology for the city's Landmarks Preservation Commission. "It's of the most important archaeological discoveries in several decades in New York City," said Adrian Benepe, commissioner of the city's Department of Parks and Recreation. "Everybody knows that the Bronx is up and the Battery's down. But I don't think anybody anticipated that the Battery was 10 feet down." the rest of the article is here:

kickass. I love when they find old buildings and tunnels and walls during construction of new buildings and the like. I hope they keep it there, maybe incorporate it in the tunnel design.
