In the Neighborhood: 9/11 Memorial Glade
In the aftermath of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, tens of thousands of men and women from every state in the nation and around the world came to this site to do what they could to help.
Facing a mountainous landscape of mangled and jagged steel at Ground Zero, and despite fires that burned for 100 days, they worked night and day over the course of nine months. They came to rescue, all too soon turning to the grim work of recovering those who had been killed and removing nearly two million tons of debris. Through sheer determination, they paved the way for rebuilding. Their sacrifice would be met with suffering.
On the day of the attacks and throughout the recovery, hundreds of thousands responders and survivors, workers and residents were exposed to hazards and toxins in the air at and around the World Trade Center site, resulting in chronic illnesses and the deaths of thousands. Responders and workers at all three attack sites, including the Pentagon and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, have been affected. For the injured, sick, and dying, and for their families and friends, 9/11 has remained an all-too-present reality.
The 9/11 Memorial Glade is dedicated in their honor and it a ten minute walk from Battery Park.

New version: "Keep ancient lands, your (asylum) storied bums!" cries she with vocal lips. "Give your talented, your rich, your high IQ merited, yearning to work, not eat free. We refuse the wretched on our teeming shore. Send these back home to fix their tempest towns, or come in legally through our golden door!"

We celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with Luis Muñoz Marín, the first elected governor of Puerto Rico (1949-65). His “Operation Bootstrap” helped transform the island economy from agriculture to manufacturing. As a young man, Muñoz Marín served as secretary to the Resident Commissioner of Puerto Rico (1916–18), a non-voting member of the U.S. House of Representatives. On this 1917 manifest, you can see he is heading back to Washington, DC, having sailed to New York on the S.S. Coamo from San Juan bit.ly/1QDsHM9. #HispanicHeritageMonth
