В Нью-Йорк Муниципальный архив представил более 870 000 фотографий из своей коллекции более 2,2 миллиона изображений Нью-Йорке в 20-м веке. Их тематика включает повседневную жизнь, строительство, преступность, городской бизнеса, аэрофотоснимки и многое другое. Я провел часы, потерянные в этих удивительных фотографиях, и собрал эту группу вместе, чтобы дать вам лишь общее представление о том, что былоп редоставлено в этой замечательной коллекции.
