National Archives at New York City

National Archives' New York on the Record Gallery: Making Your Mark

Press Release
February 2014


The National Archives at New York City's Welcome Center highlights original documents in its New York on the Record gallery. This exhibit is free and open to all visitors seeking a glimpse of original records that capture our national story. New York on the Record shows the connection between our records, our government and our history.

Featured documents include:

  • Mikhail Baryshnikov’s petition for naturalization
  • Dean Martin’s Bankruptcy Petition
  • A presidential warrant signed by President Martin van Buren
  • The Jell-O box used as evidence in the Rosenberg espionage trial and more.

This New York City installation on display now through February 2015 about signatures or markings relates to a larger national exhibit in our Washington DC office on signature documents.

Every Wednesday, join staff for a free "Gallery Talk" in our Welcome Center about these feature documents.

The National Archives at New York City is located on the 3rd floor of the Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House at One Bowling Green in Lower Manhattan. We are open Monday through Friday 10:00 am to 5:00 pm and the first Saturday of each month from 10:00 to 4:00 pm.
