Old NYC photos unearthed

Just one word for these: astonishing. The NYC Department of Records has put more than 870,000 photographs online, going back 100 years. “Taken mostly by anonymous municipal workers, some of the images have appeared in publications but most were accessible only by visiting the archive offices in lower Manhattan over the past few years. Researchers, history buffs, filmmakers, genealogists and preservationists in particular will find the digitized collection helpful. But anyone can search the images, share them through social media or purchase them as prints.“ You can order prints or digital files, and license images or film clips for commercial use.
