Approximately 50 objects bear witness to the incredible outpouring of support for New York's rescue and recovery workers in the months following September 11, from a canvas banner hung on the fence at St. Paul's and signed by recovery workers, volunteers, and people visiting groun; to the tags of bomb-sniffing dogs Ajax and Laika; to a large hand-painted sign reading "Welcome to Point Thank You".

“I met a lot of new and interesting people. I successfully completed a research project and comfortably presented in front of an audience. I have gotten to know and love this museum setting.” – Tyler Lee, 2012 Student Historian

The New-York Historical Society offers DOE-approved Professional-Credit courses each July. These classes meet for 36 hours (Monday-Saturday, 10:00-5:00) and carry three credits that can be applied toward teachers' 30-and-above salary differential. Courses will be listed and registration will be available on the After School Professional Development Program's site when the summer course catalog becomes available, typically in late spring. Courses fill up quickly, so register early!
