Independence Day 2014


    My best wishes for a safe, meaningful and enjoyable 4th of July celebration.

    Here's a reminder of the foundation of this proud national observance: America's Declaration of Independence.

    Visit the state's 4th of July online exhibit tracing the central role played by New York during the Revolutionary War.
