This also goes for the NYC Municpal Archives at 31 Chambers St. If you
get a copy >from them and it is not clear then you can order a *vault copy*
which they send on to you in two to three weeks and that is usually much
better with complete clarity.
I had a nice experience with a NYC Municipal office clerk early on in my
research: she handed over my requested photocopy of my great
grandfather's death certificate, found on the microfilm, pulled it back
and said she didn't like the way it had come out. She would put in an
order for *a better copy* (I didn't know till tonight that it would be a
vault copy). She thereupon handed the bad copy over to me, and about
three weeks later, I received the new one in the mail. It was, indeed,
much easier to read.
