New York Municipal Archives: Released Street Photography!

Standard

Hey guys, so I’ve been slacking. But in a good way. Really, I promise.

I’ve been finishing a final model shoot and have sold off my canon rebel and lenses to finally acquire the funds for an Olympus OM-D.  Stay tuned for when that ships.

But in the meanwhile, check out this Municipal Archives collection.

As for what it is, an excerpt on the page should do!

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.

There are some amazing photographs on here, street photography and other kinds mixed in for good measure. Check it out!
