Burial Vault Found Beneath Washington Square Park

(DNAINFO)  Danielle Tcholakian | November 4, 2015 — Workers on a water main project at Washington Square Park have uncovered a burial vault that could be as ancient as the century-old infrastructure they’re upgrading, officials said.

The vault is believed to date back to the 19th century, officials said, but further investigation by archaeologists and anthropologists is needed to determine its significance and its contents.
