Default Pictures of New York City since the 19th Century

Never-before-seen photos from 100 years ago tell vivid story of gritty New York City | Mail Online
Quote:
Almost a million images of New York and its municipal operations have been made public for the first time on the internet.

The city's Department of Records officially announced the debut of the photo database.

Culled from the Municipal Archives collection of more than 2.2 million images going back to the mid-1800s, the 870,000 photographs feature all manner of city oversight -- from stately ports and bridges to grisly gangland killings.
