NYC 870,000 Vintage Photos
April 30, 2012 09:46AM
On Tuesday, the Bloomberg administration released a treasure trove of 870,000 digitized images and media from the New York City Department of Records. This vast collection includes photographs dated from 1858, color images from the 1980s of every building in the city, and farm maps dated to 160 years ago.

Viewers can now experience an online exhibit of the vintage city: painters suspended from the Brooklyn Bridge (1914), two young girls walking along 42nd Street (1890), and much more.

Although the gallery is accessible free on the city’s Web site, I haven’t been able to get in the past day because traffic is so heavy the servers are down.
