2. Terrific!

My wife wrote her archeology master's thesis about Seneca Village.

Thanks for the post, Yo!

5. Like how they bulldozed the Latino neighborhood of Chavez Ravine in L.A. to build Dodger Stadium.

That was not the 1800s. That was 1959. https://laist.com/2018/10/17/dodger_stadium_chavez_ravine_battle.php
And yet, the nearby 710 Freeway abruptly stops where it would intersect the white neighborhood of Pasadena. They've been trying to extend the 710 for decades, to no avail.

6. This happened near me

A village was “removed” to put in a man-made lake and state park, in the 1960s. They say you can see a couple remnants of house foundations in the park. I can’t see the state actually creating a new recreational facility anymore, they can barely maintain the ones we have. Thank you Repugs and your cutbacks.

7. An "experiment in integration"

"Experiment" sounds too deliberate. It appears Seneca Village proved that peoples naturally integrate when left to their own devices, that they live, work and worship together without incident, even intermarrying. I think that is the lesson and legacy of this settlement. Thanks for posting.

10. Thank you for that!

I have always loved Central Park, but I had never heard about Seneca Village in my entire time living in NYC for all the time I spent in that park. That history is important to know. Where did that population go? I am assuming they must have been pushed up further north into Harlem, but I not sure.
