Clean Up Crews Found A Shipwreck From 1773 Underneath The World Trade Center
October 14, 2016
While cleaning up from the World Trade Center falling, crews found a shipwreck seven feet below the foundation (30 feet below street level) that dated back to 1773.
Archaeologists said the 32ft-long vessel was probably used along with other debris to fill in land to extend New York City into the Hudson River.
According to researchers at the Tree Ring Laboratory at Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, the ship was perhaps made from the same kind of white oak trees used to build parts of Independence Hall, where the Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution were signed.
