New York City Municipal Archives Online Gallery is the city’s first ever online image database. It consists of over 870,000 photos covering 160 years of New York City history and subjects include daily life, landmarks, construction, crime scenes and more. In addition to photographs users are also able to access maps, moving images, and audio recordings.
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.
