Default 870000 photos from the NYC Municipal Archives made available online

Over 870,000 photos from New York City Municipal Archives that exceed 2.2 million images have been scanned and made available online, for the first time giving a global audience a view of a rich collection that documents New York City life.

Pretty interesting pics!

Unfortunately the NYC Department of Records page doesn't seem to cope with the traffic, you can try your luck here:
Kill the poor!

I loved the picture of Kate Smith and Babe Ruth. Kate Smith today still sings God Bless America for the Yankees during the 7th inning stretch, I smiled when I saw that picture.

Love NY or hate it, it is an interesting look at life in one of the most unique cities of the world.
