There were community Wells and Springs that ran throughout the uptown area, from West Harlem to East Harlem to the Bronx.  These Wells and Springs were part of the historic “Indian Springs” that was named after the Wecksquaesgeek Indians. From 1897 to 1901, afterward, the Wells And Springs were plugged up, paved over and simply forgotten for health reasons.
