Reference: “OldNYC Brings 19th-Century New York Back to Life in Google Maps-Like Interface”

Note: The NY Daily News reports on a wonderful resource that we first mentioned in May 2015.  It’s more than worthy of a second mention on infoDOCKET.

From the NY Daily News:

OldNYC, an online interactive map created by software developer Dan Vanderkam, is letting people explore the Big Apple in a different era by browsing through the five boroughs looking at old photographs of landmarks, buildings and people.

The site is entirely made up of photographs from the New York Public Library’s Milstein Collection, which features more than 80,000 original photos of New York City between the 1870s and the 1970s.
