New York Says Thank You is an epic story of healing and patriotic heroism that charts the journey of four New Yorkers whose lives were touched by September 11 — as they travel the country to help communities rebuild after their own disasters. Along the way, these individuals grow, face their emotions, and ultimately triumph over tragedy through an amazing community effort that evolved from a five-year-old New York City boy’s idea to help others.
This feature-length documentary film casts a hopeful light in the shadow of the tragic day as, every September; New Yorkers are joined by an ever-growing group of disaster survivors and volunteers from around the country to pay forward the support they once received.
