Bryant Park in 1907, with construction on the library well underway.  This was the site of one of the final official potter's fields in Manhattan before they were moved to the islands of the East River. (Picture courtesy New York Public Library)

Happy Halloween!  To put you in the spirit of the season, take a look at my new article for the Huffington Post: Manhattan's Forgotten Graveyards, Under Public Parks, Famous Hotels and Supermarkets
