Seneca Village Online
This site has a host of historical features that allow interaction with the history of the land and people that made up the pre-Civil War village of Seneca, previously on the upper West Side. It had been home to many free blacks and some Irish and was razed to build Central Park in 1857. Lots of good historical links too.
