Yesterday discovered during the construction of tomorrow…

Construction crews uncovered a ship dating to the 1700s while working  at the World Trade Center site in Manhattan. I’m a history dork, so I know that most of lower Manhattan was man-made, and where the WTC site is was once a part of the Hudson River. Crews discovered leather footwear and other artifacts dating back to 1785 while working on the foundation of the Freedom Tower.
