help finding NY property #usa


Todd Brody
 

I found on family search a 1922 New York record concerning a transfer of property from my gr-grandfather.  I'd like to find out where the property was.

The attached picture identifies the property as Block # 247, Liber # 3294, and Page # 425. Does anyone know how I can find the address. It probably was where gr-grandfather's chicken market was located.   

Thanks for your help.

Hi Todd
The NYC Department of Finance website allows you to do this. I put in the block only (other information did not work) and found the address of 265 Cherry Street. Cherry street is part of the Lower East Side.

Hope this is helpful. You might find a picture at NYC Municipal archives.
Good luck on your search.

Todd,

Property transfers were published in local newspapers.  I suggest searching your great grandfather's name at this free site of old digitized newspapers, which is very heavy on NY papers:

You can also look in old city / business directories.  Ancestry.com has a large collection of NYC directories digitized.

Hope this helps,
