Recovery efforts in New York following the events of September 11, 2001 have been multi-faceted, addressing physical, economic and social needs and involving government agencies, private firms, and a myriad of nongovernmental organizations. This article, drawn from a manuscript covering the full breadth and depth of New York's experience, describes the loss and damage created on 9/11 and the funding provided by the federal government to promote recovery. Several cross-cutting values and approaches which are exemplified by recovery efforts are also described.
