The conclusion of the NYT article reads:
Finally, after the massive doors and gates of the vault slammed shut, Dr. Wartenberg Kagan expressed gratitude to the police and the heroic efforts of her staff, and gave the order for the alarm to be armed. “To say I’m relieved,” she said after the lockdown, “is putting it mildly.”I was at the ANS' Graduate Seminar in 2004, in the midst of the ANS' last move, and so I can appreciate how hectic and stressful moving the collection was for them, having witnessed it then. I'm glad to hear the collection arrived safely at its new home and wish everyone at the ANS the best at their new location. I look forward to seeing the new place next time I am in New York.
