“The Seamen’s Church Institute has operated in the Port of New York since 1834. Over the years, SCI has adapted to meet the ever-changing needs of seafarers, anticipating and reacting to changes in the maritime industry and the Port of New York. Because of this, the story of SCI is inseparable from the story of the modern seafarer, as well as the story of the development of downtown Manhattan and the Port of New Jersey.”

The online archive includes Annual Reports and meeting minutes of the Institute and its predecessor, as well as photographs and more.
