mtDNA L2 [32/46]
mtDNA L3 [10/46]
mtDNA L1 [3/46]

Note: one burial labeled as having "West/Central AFRICAN" had no mtDNA lineage displayed in the table (http://www.africanburialground.gov/FinalReports/HUsbrABG_Ch5_Rvsd.pdf) (See Table 5.8).

Thanks for this. I have planned to tour the collection of recovered skeletons and artifacts from the burial site and I think getting a little genetic background won't hurt.

I was thinking too that if the 5 boroughs ever gets lost in the ocean, at least there would be some record somewhere about some of the mtDNA's buried there.
