Seneca Gardens is an open green space gifted to New York by mutantkind located near Central Park in Manhattan.[1][2]

History

After the decision was made to recreate the X-Men, plans began for a new headquarters. The White Queen purchased a large plot of land at the southwest corner of Central Park 86th Street Transverse. Overnight, the land was cleared, Seneca Gardens was created, and The Treehouse was planted.[1]

Once it opened, Seneca Gardens operated as a free, open green space that acts as a monument to mutant achievements highlighting Krakoan technology and a memorial for mutants who did not live to Krakoa.[1]

The former homes and structures of Seneca Village were then demolished to construct Central Park.
