Archeologists say they have discovered the first slave dwelling ever found in New York City, a hidden garret in a 300-year-old former farmhouse in Brooklyn. The space may also have been used years later as a pre-Civil War stopover for slaves escaping via the Underground Railroad. The results of a three-year search by archeologists H. Arthur Bankoff, Christopher Ricciardi and Alyssa Loorya were published in the May/June issue of Archaeology magazine.
