New Research Tool: “Photo Map Will Bring You Back To Old NYC, Block By Block”
Say hello to OldNYC!
Between the NYPL, the MCNY, the Municipal Archives, the Library of Congress, and countless other resources holding images from New York City’s past, you could almost visually recreate an older version of the city on your desktop. That’s pretty much what one man—software engineer Dan Vanderkam—has done, using the NYPL’s massive database of images.
From the OldNYC About Page:
This site provides an alternative way of browsing the NYPL’s incredible Photographic Views of New York City, 1870s-1970s collection. Its goal is to help you discover the history behind the places you see every day.
