Yuval Neria, Professor of Clinical Psychology and Director of Trauma and PTSD Program, Department of Psychiatry at the New York State Psychiatric Institute and Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons, discusses the emotional consequences of 9/11.

Part four of our Decade 9/11 series of conversations: WNYC Radio Rookies Brendan Illis and Norhan Basuni and 9/11 Memorial Museum director Clifford Chanin talk about the collaboration between the museum and Radio Rookies and how young New Yorkers have lived the decade since September 11th.
Today is the first of the Radio Rookies series Our 9/11: Growing Up In the Aftermath. Jillian Suarez’s story is one she says she doesn't want to tell with tears. Jillian’s father, a New York City police officer, didn't come home on September 11th and for three months her mother held out hope he would be found alive -- until she received a call that his remains had been found. Now 18 years old, Jillian rarely speaks about the loss she feels. For this piece, she decided to push through her silence to sit down with some of the closest people in her life, including her mom, to talk about her father’s death and what his absence has meant in her life.
A new report out Wednesday examined how the more than $20 billion of federal money intended to help lower Manhattan after the September 11 attacks was actually spent.
In the days immediately after 9/11, our regular programming on WNYC 93.9 FM was suspended and we were doing wall-to-wall news coverage from NPR’s New York studio in midtown. I had been on the scene that Tuesday morning and was badly shaken by the events; and staying at home with nothing to do was definitely not helping me. So when NPR called to ask if I’d cover a live performance of the Requiem by Gabriel Fauré, and gather some sound from people at the church, I was relieved and grateful.
Mark Hilan, former host of WNYC's Morning Edition, and Larry Ingrassia, formerly of the Wall Street Journal and currently Business Editor at the New York Times, discuss having to make sense of the events on 9/11 both personally, and professionally, on the fly. Larry Ingrassia was part of the team that set up a newsroom within a few hours after the attacks and helped put together the Pulitzer Prize-winning edition of the Wall Street Journal. Mark Hilan helped keep WNYC on the air and brought people news of the events that morning.
When Robert Ridgell (organist at Trinity Wall Street Church in New York) asked me for a new work to be commissioned by Trinity Wall Street and for his wonderful Trinity Youth Chorus, I said "Yes." Then Robert told me that this new work would be part of the 9/11 Anniversary and he would appreciate having a requiem.
A conversation about how communities in New Jersey have changed since 9/11.
Donna Gaffney, trauma specialist and co-founder of 4 Action Initiative, and MaryEllen Salamone, co-founder of the Families of September 11, explore what teachers have learned from talking to kids about 9/11 for 10 years. They discuss the curriculum they helped develop with other volunteers from Liberty Science Center and the New Jersey Commission on Holocaust Education, titled "Learning from the Challenges of Our Times: Global Security, Terrorism, and 9/11 in the Classroom."
As we take all the generous musical suggestions you've provided and strive to channel them into a cohesive, fluid stream of music for the 9/11 weekend, we acknowledge a complicated, but inevitable, decision. We have an idea how to proceed; however, we want to hear your thoughts as to the most appropriate, respectful course of action.
As part of Q2's Requiem Project, we're collecting stories from the New York Public Radio archives to augment the music stream — voices that expand upon the themes in the music, and vice versa. We recently wondered: what if we blended the two? We've put together a little audio experiment and we'd like you to evaluate the results.
This week on The New Canon, we talk with composers Daniel Felsenfeld and Eleonor Sandresky about their upcoming marathon memorial concert, Music After 9/11. Join us for an online listening session and free-form conversation with the composers and your fellow chatters on Monday at 4 p.m.
Ten years after the World Trade Center attacks, WNYC's 10th Anniversary Special explores New Yorkers’ most visceral and immediate emotional reactions to the terrorist attacks of 9/11 and how they are – and are not - still with us today.
To mark the 10th anniversary of 9/11, The Brian Lehrer Show will air a series of 10 “Decade 9/11” conversations with big ...
The requiem that stands out for me is the performance I heard of Brahms’s Ein Deutsches Requiem (A German Requiem) shortly after the attacks of September 11, 2001. The performance was by the New York Philharmonic under the direction of Kurt Masur at Avery Fisher Hall. A collective feeling of wounded angst could be felt as audience-goers entered the auditorium.
The 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks is just a few weeks away, and Studio 360 is curating a list of cultural works that reflected on the tragic events. We asked you: what would you add to the list? You responded with books, movies, songs, and poems, with suggestions ranging from Rufus Wainwright to John Adams.
It is twelve years since I finished composing Chrysalid Requiem — a setting of the Latin funeral service, plus the "Libera me" and "In paradisum" from the burial service. Rather than the commemoration of someone’s death, I found other reasons for the project. The Latin words sing beautifully, cry for a wildly imaginative setting and resonate with layers of metaphor that suggest a complex musical fabric.
