Container List

Series D.III. New York City Buildings, Parks and Other Cityscapes (2002 and later), 2002-2017. 426.4 Megabytes (1548 digital images in JPG format)

Scope and Contents

The series holds photos of various areas of the city, primarily in Manhattan but also of Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx. Within Manhattan, areas that figure prominently include Central Park, the Upper West Side, 125th Street, Midtown, Greenwich Village, and Chinatown. The views are primarily exteriors of buildings, storefronts, parks, street views, and street traffic. These views range from close details, such as signage, shop displays, and doorways, to broad vistas of the skyline as seen down avenues, across the East River, or from bridges. Interior views of buildings are much less common in the series and their occurrence are typically noted in the container list. The specific scope of the series and the determination of which photos to include in it was made by the processing archivist.

The series is arranged in rough chronological order by the date of the photographs.
