As a new federal courthouse was being developed in lower Manhattan in the early 1990’s, GSA, in fulfillment of its obligations under the National Historic Preservation Act and related federal legislation, undertook archeological investigations at a location once known as Five Points, New York. It was named for the points created by the intersection of Park, Worth, and Baxter streets.

Today, the Five Points neighborhood, once known as a center of vice, crime and debauchery throughout the nineteenth century is occupied by a center of justice – the Daniel Patrick Moynihan U.S. Courthouse. More information about the archeological investigations and discoveries available at Five Points Site or by selecting the picture on this page.
