O’Hara’s: Resilience on Tap

Wednesday, May 29, 2024, 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 7 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 and 9/11 survivor Tim Brown, and Dr. David Abramson, Director of the Center for Public Health Disaster Science at NYU’s School of Global Public Health.
