The city took tax photos of every building in New York ... the
limitation is that this was only done between 1939-1941. I had long
been longing for a photo that would have included the storefront of a restaurant my grandfather had at 10 Delancey Street between 1910 and
1920 while it was still open. The Department of Records photo of it
was long past that time but at least gave me a better idea of what it
looked like in past times.
The other excellent tool, probably known to many here already, is the
New York Public Library's oldnyc.org site. It presents you with a map
of the five boroughs with cross streets and dots to click in that take
you to what photos are available for that location.If you're working
from a street number, go to Google maps and find the nearest cross
street and then go to the NYPL map.
