Access Restrictions

Open to qualified researchers. Most of the materials are stored offsite and advance notice is required for use. Please contact prior to your research visit to coordinate access. Keep in mind that it will take between two (2) and five (5) business days for collections to arrive, and you should plan your research accordingly.

Some of the material in the collection is restricted for conservation reasons (audiovisual in Series IV and artwork in Series VI). See those series for specifics.

Use Restrictions

Taking images of documents from the library collections for reference purposes by using hand-held cameras and in accordance with the library's photography guidelines is encouraged. As an alternative, patrons may request up to 20 images per day from staff. Application to use images from this collection for publication should be made in writing to: Department of Rights and Reproductions, The New-York Historical Society, 170 Central Park West, New York, NY 10024-5194, Phone: (212) 873-3400 ext. 282.

Processing Information

The collection was inventoried and a finding aid prepared by archivist Larry Weimer and intern Sydney Bebon of the Princeton Internships in Civic Service (PICS) program in July 2021. Minimal physical processing was done and so the collection remains in original binders, photographic slide and print enclosures, and folders as received from CITYarts in 2016. Digital and audiovisual content also remains in its original media.
