paper; ink
Dimensions:

Type:
Archival Material
Place:
New York
Date:
September 11, 2001
Description:
This interim register report was collected from a postal service window at the Church Street Station Post Office, New York, New York. The report recorded the date, time and amount of transactions conducted at the window. The Church Street Station Post Office was open for business on the morning of September 11, 2001, but the last transaction for the day was recorded at 8:47 a.m. Employees and customers were ordered to leave the building following the attacks on the nearby World Trade Center.
The Church Street Station, located at the corner of Church and Vesey streets, faced World Trade Center building 7 to the west and buildings 5 and 6 to the south-southwest. The Church Street Post Office sustained damage from the force of the explosions, the debris of the fallen buildings, and from water used by firefighters working from the post office building to extinguish fires in the nearby World Trade Center. With the Church Street building closed, other post offices took on additional operations until the building was restored and reopened in 2004.

Remembering September 11, 2001: Letter Carrier Emma Thornton
Description:
Emma Thornton's route covered floors 77 through 110 of Tower 1. It was the first to be struck that day. 10048 and 10047 were the ZIP codes for the World Trade Center buildings. Neither code exists today. On the morning of September 11, the employees of Church Street Station Post Office were busy at work inside the building, across the street from the World Trade Center. Thornton was preparing her mail for delivery. She stepped outside for a break. In this video, Thornton explains what happened that day. In the days after September 11, Church Street Station Post Office employees were re-located to other postal facilities nearby. Customers came to the post office to collect their mail. It was an opportunity for relief and reunion. This oral history was recorded and edited by the Smithsonian National Postal Museum.

September 11: FAA Closure of US Airspace
Description:
This animation was created by NASA using FAA air traffic control data from September 11, 2001. It shows the rapid grounding of air traffic across the US, and redirection of incoming international traffic, in response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Time is at lower left, number of planes in the air lower right. At 9:06am, FAA issued a ground stop to all traffic not yet departed that would encounter NY airspace ["tier one"- NY, DC, Boston, Cleveland] . A series of rapid decisions followed, including redirecting inbound traffic away from NY and warning airplanes in the air of potential cockpit intrusion. At 9:45am, FAA Command Center decided to close all US airspace for the first time in history. Within a few hours, all commercial air traffic was grounded. This animation is displayed in the National Air and Space Museum's "America by Air" exhibition.

Summary:
Joseph Henry's inaugural address to the Albany Academy as Professor of Mathematics and Natural Philiosophy, or physics. Henry, later the first secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, had attended the Albany Academy from 1819 to 1822 and started a professorship there in September of 1826. In his first formal event as an educator, Henry discussed the history of the disciplines of mathematics and physics and offered a look into the future of the field and the work he hoped to accomplish while at the Academy. He began with a historical overview of mathematics, then provided examples of contemporary research, chiefly in the application of calculus to natural philosophy. After describing some of the more arcane aspects of mathematical physics, he discussed the application of mathematics to technology and to the advancement of humankind.
