    I answered Wendy Griswold privately on this, but thought it might be
    useful to others here.

    One way to find a specific photo by address is to go online to the New
    York City Department of Records and Information Services https://nycma.lunaimaging.com/luna/servlet/NYCMA~5~5

    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.
