Items in New York Heritage are organized into collections, which provide additional context for understanding their significance and meaning.
The Proceedings of the Rochester Academy of Science include original papers relating to the natural history of western New York State and biographical articles on the scientists who contributed to knowledge within this field. The abstracts of papers and posters presented at the annual Scientific Paper Session are included in issues as well. Topics range from the glaciology of the area, the water levels of Lake Ontario, to the flora of Bergen Swamp and Mendon Ponds Park. The Proceedings have been published on an irregular schedule since 1890.
Digital copies of the Plainview-Old Bethpage Local History Photograph Collection.
Postcards of scenes from around New York State. Most of the postcards in this collection are believed to have been produced by Schenectady photographer Parker S. Goodfellow.
Photographs of places of worship in Nassau and Suffolk Counties.
The exhibition Portraits of Hope: Faces of Refugee Resettlement in Central New York depicted survivors of war, genocide, and political strife who came to the U.S. and settled in the Utica region after living in refugee camps in Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe and the Middle East. This exhibition of more than 30 photographs celebrated diversity, and confronted stereotypes about resettlement while exploring the challenges and aspirations of local refugees starting over in a new land.
