Series VI. Manhattan Buildings Research

Scope and Contents note

This series consists of Weisman's scrapbooks of data sheets and prints arranged in chronological order by construction date. The data sheets contain such basic information as construction costs and brief physical descriptions, as well as bibliographical notes. This research material is in files in the same order as in the Weisman's binders themselves, with the exception of the indices that have been placed in the first folder. These indices give a list year-by-year of the New York City buildings included in this series. These buildings are predominantly early skyscrapers, built 1865 -- 1897. All the photos included with the information are also located among the mounted copy prints.
