Items in New York Heritage are organized into collections, which provide additional context for understanding their significance and meaning.

The Champlain Canal Collection contains images of the construction of Lock # 2 on the Champlain Canal near Mechanicville, New York.
This collection documents the activities of the CNY Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society, including views of the station museum restorations at Martisco and Central Square; the restoration and operation of locomotives and rolling stock; and Chapter-sponsored "Great New York State Model Train Fair."
