O'Hara's: Resilience on Tap
Wednesday, May 29 at 6 p.m. ET
In the aftermath of 9/11, individuals came together in public spaces to grieve, find solace, and memorialize the attacks. These spaces fostered a sense of community that, in some cases, endure two decades later. O’Hara’s Restaurant and Pub is one of these sites. After suffering significant structural damage on 9/11, the bar re-opened seven months after the attacks, quickly becoming a space of mourning, healing, and a living tribute to first responders. To discuss the role of O’Hara’s after 9/11, the importance of community spaces, and how social ties are critical aspects of resilience, Museum Director, Clifford Chanin, is joined by Mike Keane, co-owner of O’Hara’s, retired firefighter Tim Brown, and Dr. David AbramsonDirector of the Center for Public Health Disaster Science at NYU’s School of Global Public Health. 
Please note that you must register in order to attend these events in person, and seating is limited.

For those unable to attend, the events will be broadcast live, with captioning, at

The 9/11 Memorial & Museum’s programs are made possible, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
