NYC & Company, the City of New York’s official destination-marketing organization, is launching an “NYC Virtual Field Trips” online resource, which will spotlight online experiences of New York’s many cultural institutions—including the 9/11 Memorial & Museum—to engage those currently unable to visit the city.

This initiative includes curated recommendations that can be browsed by content, content, subject, borough, age range, and more.

The 9/11 Memorial & Museum currently offers virtual Memorial tours for youths and adults, an interactive Museum tour, as well as a slate of online lesson plans and art-making activities to engage young learners.

View the full list of offerings from NYC & Company, and visit our Learn and Explore From Home page for more interactive experiences.

A Tree, Gone; Its Roots, Enduring

Trinity Root maquette sculpture by Steve Tobin. The maquette was modeled after the stump and roots of the sycamore tree that was in the yard at St. Paul's Chapel.

In 2016, this arresting maquette was donated to the 9/11 Memorial & Museum by the sculptor, thereby preserving a bronzed fraction of the storied sycamore near its original habitat outside St. Paul’s Chapel. Today, Trinity Root endures, virtually, as an exemplar of Response Art shared in Inside the Collection.
