New Online Resource: “Mapping the NYC Landmarks and Historic Districts Related to Black History

From 6sqft:

The Landmarks Preservation Commission on Tuesday released an interactive story map that explores significant buildings, districts, and sites in New York City that are related to Black history and culture. The project highlights 75 individual landmarks and 33 historic districts associated with African American figures and historical events across the five boroughs dating to before the Civil War up to today, from the African Burial Ground in Lower Manhattan to the East 25th Street Historic District in Flatbush.

The interactive map allows users to find landmarks and historic districts by year of significance, the building type (residential, religious, commercial, or community buildings), and the date of designation.
