JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: Looking for Pictures of Monroe, Henry and Rutgers Streets NYC 1900-1918 #general
I went back to my original order form >from the NYC Municipal Archives andtoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
see that the photos which they have are >from the 1940 Tax survey. The cost
is $30 for an 8 x 10 print. The form indicates an additional $5 fee for a
block and lot search which I did not pay for and that is likely the reason
I received unspecific prints.
The address is NYC Municipal Archives, 31 Chamber Street, New York NY
In a message dated 6/26/2009 11:24:33 A.M. Eastern Daylight Time,
What people are really looking for in this thread is not the photos >from the
NYPL, nor, I think those >from the Municipal Archive, but the New York City
Tax Photos, resulting >from a New Deal era project to photograph EACH
individual property in the city. My recollection, >from a presentation on
this that I attended a few years ago, is that the photos are at the City
Building Department but can be ordered on-line or by mail. To do that,
however, you need the Tax Lot number of the property in question.
