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

Pictures, architectural drawings, and ephemera of the Pratt House and Webb Institute.
Historic photographs of Hempstead, NY.
Portraits of the Horton family, as well as photographs of their mansion’s construction. (Later Horton and Morrison Hall.)
This collection highlights images and documents reflecting the College's move from its downtown Troy location to a permanent multi-building campus on the outskirts of the city to meet the demands of a growing student body and faculty, the need for varied instructional resources, and  continued growth as an established institution of higher education.
