StoryCorps is a national project to instruct and inspire people to record each others' stories in sound. The first StoryBooths opened in New York City's Grand Central Terminal on October 23, 2003, and many moving stories about the tragic events of September 11, 2001, have been recorded. The World Trade Center StoryBooth was open to the general public, and special access was given to families remembering those who were lost on September 11th, as well as rescue workers and survivors. The Lower Manhattan StoryBooth was launched in July of 2005 on the concourse of the World Trade Center PATH station. We celebrated its reopening on April 3, 2008 at its new location in Foley Square. Storycorps hopes to make the experience as simple as possible: They''ll help you figure out what questions to ask. They handle all the technical aspects of the recording. At the end of the hour-long session, you'll get a copy of your interview on CD. And thanks to the generous contributions of their supporters, they ask for a $25 suggested donation. Since they want to make sure your story lives on for generations to come, they will also add your interview to the StoryCorps Archive, housed at the Amer... more

Since they want to make sure your story lives on for generations to come, they will also add your interview to the StoryCorps Archive, housed at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress, which we hope will become nothing less than an oral history of America.

Foley Square is located above City Hall Park in downtown Manhattan on Centre Street between Duane and Worth streets, across from the U.S. Courthouse.

You can cancel your appointment using the online reservation system, or by calling 800-850-4406. To cancel on the same day of your interview, you must call 646-723-7027. Due to the high volume of calls we are unable to call back individuals about cancellations.
There is no charge for cancellation unless you cancel with less than 24 hours’ advance notice. Because we are unable to fill that time slot on such short notice, we will charge $25 to the credit card used to make your reservation.
