New Yorkers there is an absolute treasure trove of amazing photographs about New York available to you, each and every one of you.
See the exciting and interesting video to get an idea of the riches in this treasure trove.
Once upon a time the City used to photograph all New York buildings at regular intervals for tax purposes. There was a run of such photographs in the late 1930’s early 40’s and then another one from 1983-88. You can have the one of your building printed off for you. The price of this varies according to the size of the print you order.
All of these pics plus 870,000 others are stored in NYC”s Department of Records. You can access it here, NYC Govt Records
It’s worth while just going to the site and searching through the records. There’s some weird and wonderful stuff. Police evidence pics, Vaudeville lovelies entertaining troupes and even the original presentation of the plan for Central Park.
It’s your history New Yorkers and it’s superb. Enjoy. LIKE that there is such a great photographic history of NYC.
