New York City Municipal Archives Digital Galleries
The Department of Records and Information Services preserves and provides public access to historical and contemporary records and information about New York City government.
The NYC Municipal Archives added over 720,000 photographs from the 1940s Tax Photograph collection to their online gallery. The collection consists of photographs of every building in the 5 boroughs, ca. 1940, taken for tax assessment purposes.
