The tour, conducted by Grange staff, also offers a valuable place-based learning experience.

The African Burial Ground (ABG) in Lower Manhattan serves as the opening for the class and provides students with an understanding of the formation of race in New York City. Along with their instructor, students tour the ABG museum and monument. The field trip includes a presentation by a park ranger, who provides an overview of the history of the museum and monument.

New York Public Library Map Room. We visit this collection after an in-class introduction to how to use maps for research and how to interpret maps. The librarians provide a lecture on how to use maps, both analog and digital, to understand how a neighborhood has changed. They can pull maps for a specific neighborhood that students can directly handle. If desired, the librarians can teach students by appointment how to use the NYPL's Map Warper to overlay maps of different historic periods for the same location.
