This month, the New York City Municipal Archives Online Gallery gave the world access to over 870,000 digitized images of our gorgeous city.
Here you can see unique photographs, maps, motion picture and audio recordings of our incredible city. They are organized by category based on the source of the photos. Police evidence, Parks Department, Ports and Terminals, Radio, Film and TV, even categorized by mayors - from the past 100 years!
Of course, nothing beats seeing the city by foot -- and that's what we are here for. But after your amazing tour with us, you can always search the archives for more sights.
This category is particularly stunning: The DeGregario Collection: 55 glass lantern slides dating back to the late 1800s.
