Artifacts from Irish Tenements and Saloon in Five Points

The archeological excavation of the Foley Square Courthouse at 500 Pearl Street, located near the former intersection that once comprised the Five Points neighborhood, yielded over 850,000 artifacts, some of which are depicted below. The artifacts from the Five Points site were stored in the basement of 6 World Trade Center; all but a few were destroyed on September 11, 2001.
