Slavery was abolished in New York in 1827. Prior to that, the Dyckmans, Nagles, and other Uptown families, made use of enslaved labor.

  1. I wonder why my teachers at PS 98– 1940-1946; never mentioned this. My apartment house was on 211th.. i My family lived there until the 70s.

  2. Sad History! I appreciate learning about the slave cementery and its location. Drove by without knowing. Next time I am near I will walk and stop to show my respects.
