Unseen New York City

This post should be about a year old, but somehow I missed it when last year the New York Department of Records released almost one million historic photographs documenting everything from life in the city in the mid-1800s, to the construction of some of Gotham’s most notable architectural landmarks. It’s a fascinating look at the world’s greatest city, and something New Yorkers (and fans of the city—and heck, fans of historic photography in general) are sure to love sinking their eyes into. Read more at the Daily Mail, then head over to the Department’s web site to have a look through the archives yourself. (Oh, and thanks to Shaun Sundholm and his great blog for telling us about the story in the first place.)
