Visitors to New York City and Sandy Hook, New Jersey can now download and use three free apps to visit national parks, with 23 different locations, throughout New York Harbor. Locations include the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn, African Burial Ground, Federal Hall and Governors Island.
African Burial Ground National Monument
New York City's African Burial Ground National Monument is celebrating Black History Month with programs and workshops throughout February.
This week’s quiz will find out how much you know about archeological research and the remains of past human life and culture in our national parks. Answers are at the end. If we catch you peeking, we’ll make you write on the whiteboard 100 times: “Archeology derives from the Greek ἀρχαιολογία, archaiologia – ἀρχαῖος, archaīos and -λογία, -logia.”
East Coast viewers get a chance this holiday weekend to update themselves with national parks and monuments in the greater metropolitan area of New York City via public television station WNET, Channel 13.
