Images of New York State include photographs of crowds on Jones Beach, farmhouses in the Hamptons, a dance club in Plattekill, New York, and the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park. Also included are several images of the Eisenhower Lock on the St. Lawrence Seaway in Massena, New York.

Subseries I.3 Subjects-New York City contains photographs of buildings, streets and events in Manhattan and the surrounding boroughs. Images date from approximately 1968 to 1987, with many slides undated.

"Education" includes images of public schools, newly desegregated classrooms and classes at New York University, Columbia University and LaGuardia Community College. Images of the 1978 New York Marathon are included in "Competitions-Sports", along with a Jets football game and people gambling at an Off Track Betting branch. Photographs of the proceedings of the Knapp Commission, investigating corruption in the New York City police force, are located with "Events-Miscellaneous".
